PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

In this video interview, Clair Mellenthin explains that through the lens of attachment theory, participants will gain a new understanding of how children and families interact and bond to one another in healthy vs maladaptive ways. We will be looking at the manner in which trauma, abuse, and neglect impact the bonds of attachment within the family system and how the power of attachment-based play therapy can help to heal these wounds. Participants will learn new and innovative play therapy techniques and leave with a creative toolbox of tips, techniques, and a clear understanding of how attachment styles impact relationships.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

1. Participants will learn how attachment theory applies to play therapy and to view family systems through the lens of attachment.


2. Participants will be able to conceptualize attachment patterns that impact modern parent-child relationships.


3- Participant will learn skills in becoming more competent and confident in engaging parents in family play therapy.


4- Participants will learn effective evidence-based play therapy techniques that can be used immediately with their client populations.
