The Power of Play through the Lifespan: Strengthening Relationships and Building Resilience

Healthy attachments are the foundation of the work we do and the lives we live.  This workshop will provide creative play-based interventions to strengthen relationships, build resilience and foster trust.  Play is essential to healthy social and emotional development.  Children speak the language of play and laughter is the best medicine.  The hands-on activities are attachment focused through play therapy modalities called Theraplay and Parent-child relationship play therapy.  These activities are appropriate for all ages.
