This workshop is now full. Please use the booking form if you would like to be placed on the waiting list.

Monday 26th September 2016, 9:45-12:45

Rosie trained as a Non-Directive Play Therapist at York University. She has worked with children and families affected by drug and alcohol use, homelessness, terminal illness and bereavement, as well as a range of other issues.

In this interactive workshop, Rosie will use demonstrations and experiential exercises to introduce the key skills and principles used in Play Therapy. These include:

  • facilitating child-led play;

  • empathic reflection of children’s feelings;

  • sensory play;

  • recognising and identifying play themes.

Participants will have the opportunity to experiment with a range of toys and materials.

This workshop is suitable for counsellors working with adult clients, as well as those working with children, and there will be time to discuss how these techniques might be adapted for different client groups.
