Play Therapy with Sexually Traumatized Children 1

Monday, May 20, 2013
9:00am – 3:00pm (registration begins at 8:30)

Children who have been sexually traumatized are often in need of our clinical services. Using the best elements of both directive and non-directive play therapy approaches with these traumatized children allows for healing and repair of losses associated with sexual trauma like innocence, trust, and appropriate boundaries. In this workshop, participants will learn about sexual development in children, the psychological markers of sexual trauma, and the special issues these children present in play therapy. Including consulting with non-offending parents, dealing with powerful impact of countertransference, and setting limits.

By the end of this workshop participants will be able to: 1) identify sexualized play in play therapy; 2) have experience and replicate techniques suitable in play therapy for children who have been traumatized sexually; 3) utilize skills to alleviate issues of countertransference.

Play Therapy with Sexually Traumatized Children 2

Tuesday, May 21, 2013
9:00am – 3:00pm (registration begins at 8:30)

As clinicians who work with children, we are well aware of the unique and complex issues that sexually traumatized children bring to therapy sessions. Their pain, losses, and fears are present in play therapy even when they do not verbalize their experiences, feelings, or thoughts. The ability of the clinician to skillfully use play therapy with sexually traumatized children is enhanced through practice and experiential, authentic learning opportunities.

In this workshop, participants will 1.) practice identifying the markers of sexual trauma in play therapy sessions; 2.) learn to handle disclosures in play therapy sessions; 3.) recognize the special issues these children present in play therapy including consulting with non-offending parents, dealing with the powerful impact of countertransference, and setting limits. Be prepared to participate in mock sessions.

Who should attend?:
Mental health and educational professionals (and graduate students in those disciplines) who work with children, can significantly benefit from this training.

Continuing Education Certificate:
We offer continuing education certificates through the Association for Play Therapy (APT) and the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC) for a price of $15.00/each or $25.00/both APT & NBCC.
