About the Course


As a play therapist, many of our clients, children to adults, have experienced overwhelming amounts of pain and distress during those crucial years of brain development. By taking a deeper dive into the brain, we will better understand how traumatic experiences can affect a person's ability to regulate and function in the playroom and beyond. In this training, participants will learn various play-based techniques to activate different parts of the brain to promote healthy development. Participants will also identify ways to help clients (and ourselves!) integrate simple neurobiologically-informed play therapy practices into a daily routine.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify play therapy interventions that target specific sensory and self-regulation needs for the developing brain in children with acute and traumatic stress.
  2. Discuss play therapy interventions and activities that promote relational health.
  3. Execute play therapy techniques that assist in redirecting and regulating dysregulated children in the playroom and beyond.

Participant Expectations

  • This Webinar is Watch At-Will meaning participants are responsible for watching the webinar on their own time.
  • After participants complete the webinar, they will need to complete the accompanying quiz and course evaluation to receive CEs.
