Description:  

As therapists, we know that children use play to relieve their grief experiences and to gain mastery over the trauma often caused by the death of a loved one. This workshop will give participants a clear guide on how to use an approach that is developmentally organized, relationship focused, strength based, and contextually grounded to differentiate between a child's normal grief reaction and complicated or traumatic bereavement. The workshop will introduce play therapy techniques to be used during assessment and treatment. Case examples will add to the workshop, sending therapists home with new play therapy techniques and activities to use with children 3 to 18 years old.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the difference between a child's normal grief reaction and complicated or traumatic bereavement.
  2.  Demonstrate 3 play therapy techniques to assess the child's understanding and interpretation of his or her loss.
  3. Demonstrate 3 play therapy techniques to strengthen the child's coping abilities and to begin to resolve issues surrounding the child's grief.
