Course description

This 2 hour RECORDED WEBINAR is an opportunity to learn interventions for self-regulation developed by Amy Reamer. Amy uses the concept of certain animals in conjunction with neuroscience as a part of play therapy with young children, teens, adults and even with couples and parents as a very useful tool.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will receive a basic understanding of the role the amygdala/limbic system, hippocampus and cortex have in emotion regulation and how this is especially important when working with child clients in play therapy.

  2. Participants will receive a new psychoeducational tool for child clients and their parents as part of the play therapy process.

  3. Participants will develop an ability to communicate comfortably with child clients and parents in play therapy about the brain using the Tiger/Owl concept during the play therapy process.

  4. Participants will receive at least 3 ideas of how to use these tools in play therapy under different therapy modalities.
