Approaching Sandtray as a Mindfulness Tool in Play Therapy
Friday, June 7, 2019
Times (in Central time):
education hours can be earned for attending this training.
All therapists, regardless of theoretical orientation or clinical setting, need to be equipped to embody mindfulness and practice quality attunement with clients. Effective attunement impacts client engagement in therapy, client retention, and overall therapeutic effectiveness. Play therapy, whether used in individual or group contexts, offers unique opportunities for creating space for felt experiences with mindful attunement. This workshop will introduce the protocols for practicing effective play therapy using the sand tray while offering even advanced sandtray practitioners the opportunity to enhance skills by focusing on creative applications for increased mindful attunement with clients. The workshop will be heavily experiential and could elicit strong emotions for participants, but special attention to building safe resources will precede all experiential practice.
