Attachment Intervention Meets Play Therapy With Littles
Training Information

Offered By Riverbend Integrative Trauma Treatment

Who would benefit from this training? ASWs, LCSWs, LPCs, Residents in Counseling, anyone wishing to broaden their knowledgebase with attachment and play therapy. This training covers working with parents/caregivers and young children in a therapeutic play environment. We will discuss how insecure attachment and trauma present in the playroom and affect a young child's felt sense of safety. Therapists will leave the training with concrete skills to playfully encourage attuned responses to the child from caregivers. Two one hour consult groups are included with the cost of the training. CEs for consult groups are not available for professional counselors.
