Event description
Trauma Informed Approaches to Understanding Aggression and Revolutionize Therapeutic Practice with 
 Children and Young People

About this Event

British Columbia Association of Social Workers (Thompson-Nicola branch) is pleased to welcome Lisa Dion from the Synergetic Play Therapy Institute for this important workshop. This training will take place in Kamloops, BC, on the unceded traditional territory of the Tk’emlúps te Secwe̓pemc people. Catered lunch and morning refreshments will be provided. This two-day workshop runs 8:30-4:30 on both May 28th and 29th.

Using hands-on and practical techniques, Lisa will assist the group to trace the moment by moment shifts in regulation between caregiver and child, providing a level of insight which supports the transformation of aggression into ways of connecting and mutual trust.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will come away with a range of new skills and strategies that include:

  • Being able to describe how therapeutic play works from a neurobiological perspective
  • Learning how to set boundaries without shaming or shutting down the child
  • Learning how to make aggressive play therapeutic
  • Understanding how to work with the intensity of aggressive play without the therapist’s own nervous system shutting down resulting in compassion fatigue and burn out
  • Learning how to become the external regulator in a session to deepen children’s ability to integrate the challenging experiences they are working through
