Event Details

Anxiety, self-regulation, anger, not communicating, difficulty in expressing feelings, feeling hopeless....these are only a few of the issues that children bring into the classroom, day care setting, or the clinical office.  Imagine being able to deal with any of these in a way that draws children and youth in, provides a safe and fun avenue to explore or alter each of these issues, and can help to reach goals set.  Greg has amazed audiences at how simple and effective a play based approach to teaching or doing clinical work with children and youth can be, (including working with families).

This workshop will provide participants with a comprehensive set of practical tools and techniques to use with children, youth and families.  Previous experience in play or play therapy is not required as this will provide tools, games and activities which can be integrated into any practice or setting and with any age. Those with play experience or using play therapy more formally will be able to add to their existing “tool box”. The tools introduced can be used by anyone, (ie. Educators, Day Care Workers, Health/Mental Health practitioners, etc.)  

Participants will learn how to introduce the use of play, to select an appropriate tool or technique and use these effectively. This workshop will be highly experiential so participants will have an opportunity to experience the use the various games, activities and techniques being presented.  

This workshop will provide participants with the following:

·      Understand the importance of play and why it works.

·       To be able to introduce play activities/tools in any setting.

·       To create a clear focus for the use of the play tool/activity

·       To feel more comfortable using play tools, techniques and activities.

·       To be able to adapt a play activity to fit the child’s needs.

·       To be able to use play tools to create goals as well as to evaluate outcome

·       To be able to create a play “kit” which can be accessed at any time
