CPD Training: Introduction to Play Therapy Part 3 – Is this really my story? Fri, 4 Dec 2020 10:00

Intro to Play Therapy -Part 3 – How a child forms a personal narrative of their life and how this story is adapted through out development.

With Kids is an organisation who specialise in delivering therapeutic interventions, staff training in schools throughout Scotland. Working experienced play therapists deliver the MSc programme in Play Therapy in partnership with Queen Margaret University. 

Play Therapy is a unique and specialised intervention which can help young children make sense of what is happening in their world. In doing this children are able to develop coping mechanisms to help them deal with adverse life events or experiences in more positive ways.

This series of workshops are suitable for individuals considering taking up professional training in Play Therapy as well as professionals who are already working with children e.g. social workers, occupational/speech therapists, mental health professionals, residential workers etc.

Due to the Covid pandemic, we have been unable to run our successful face to face Introduction to Play Therapy workshop. We have adapted this full day workshop into three online sessions which can be attended consecutively or independently from each other.

The third workshop in this series is about reintroducing words. Children like to tell stories however these are not often in a format adults are familiar with. Children like to make sense of their life and in this workshop we will explore the different ways this can happen.

Participants will explore :

  • The emergence of a personal narrative linked to developmental age and stage.
  • How a personal narrative evolves and dictates who we should be rather than who we are.
  • How our perception of other people’s narrative can influence our interactions.
  • The importance and role of symbols in our stories.

This will be explored through the presentation, discussion, case study and reflective activities.

This event will take place live on Zoom and delivered by Jeanne McLaughlin who is a working play therapist, clinical supervisor and module leader for the MSc in play therapy.
