Thank you & What’s Next After Your 2-Day Training (Hawaii APT Conference)!

You did it!  You completed the 2-Day training: Revolutionizing Play & Therapeutic Practice with Children with the Hawaiian Association for Play Therapy. We’re so grateful for you and all of the hard work you put into this experience.  On behalf of the children and the family you worked with, thank you.  It’s great to have you as part of our Synergetic Play Therapy Community!

Now that you’ve completed a 2-day training with Lisa Dion, consider joining us for the Synergetic Play Therapy® Supplemental Course … As a gentle reminder, one of the perks and reasons why the Hawaii APT board chose this 2 day course was to provide you a way that you can keep learning and expanding ……….you can keep learning and expanding what we covered through the Synergetic Play Therapy® Supplemental course, which is only offered to individuals who attend a 2-day training (or equivalent) with me.

Find all the details and register here by April 1st to take advantage! The course starts April 5th.

Why take the SPT Supplemental course? … In just 2 days, Lisa wasn’t able to cover all the material that she would have loved to cover for you had this been an introduction to SPT course … So, we designed a supplemental course to give you the rest of the material. (If you loved the training you just did, you’re going to love this course!)

The Synergetic Play Therapy® Supplemental course gives you the information you haven’t received yet to deepen your skills and provide you with the missing pieces of the SPT puzzle.

You’ll receive 9 hours of recorded content including new topics such as:

  • The Tenets of Synergetic Play Therapy®
  • Assessing emotional age in play therapy
  • Tracking progress in play therapy
  • Understanding integration in play therapy
  • Types of reflective statements that will transform your play therapy practice
  • Working effectively with caregivers
  • Attachment in play therapy
  • Sand and Art from the perspectives of nervous system regulation, attunement, attachment, mindfulness, and authenticity
  • And much much more! Including a bonus webinar – SPT & Teletherapy

You’ll review and keep exploring:

  • The Neuroscience behind what is happening in play therapy
  • How to repattern a child’s Nervous System
  • What it means to become an External Regulator
  • How to work with Aggression and create a Neuroception of Safety

And one of the amazing things about this is, you’ll get to take all that you’re learning and bring it into the clients you work with through 6 monthly group consultations. Your SPT Consultant will help you integrate the knowledge in a way that is meaningful for you!

Plus, this supplemental course meets the prerequisite requirements for our SPT Certification program just in case you might be considering more advanced SPT training. ✨

Register here if you’d like to be part of this course that’s just as much for you as it is for the children you work with. Registration ends April 1st. We start April 5th! – (…and if you’re wondering what happens on the day we start, this is when you’ll get access to Supplemental course content starting with Lesson 1 and your SPT Consultant wille reach out to schedule your monthly group consultation time)

In gratitude, 🙏
