What is Synergetic Play Therapy? (…you might be asking this question and that’s totally understandable) Synergetic Play Therapy® (2008) is a researched-informed model of play therapy blending the therapeutic power of play with nervous system regulation, interpersonal neurobiology, physics, attachment, mindfulness, and therapist authenticity. It grew from personal experience as well as research in neuroscience, Interpersonal Neurobiology, and attachment theory (see Badenoch, 2008; Porges, 2011; Schore, 1994; Siegel, 1999 for coverage of the ideas behind SPT). Preliminary research suggests that SPT significantly improves emotional tolerance and regulation (Dion & Gray, 2014; Simmons, 2020).

Although Synergetic  Play Therapy is a model of play therapy, it’s also a way of being in relationship with self and others. It’s an all-encompassing paradigm that can be applied to any facet of life and, subsequently, any model of play therapy can be applied to it or vice versa. Synergetic Play Therapy is both non-directive and directive in its application.

Keep learning & growing with us: No matter what type of training you’re looking for, we can accommodate!

Advanced Self Mastery Program – Demartini Method Training Program & Facilitator Information

Many of you may want to continue to do some integrative work using the Demartini Method®. If so, I encourage you to look back on your timeline exercise and notice if your perception of any of the events on your timeline has shifted as a result of the work you did. Also, notice what experiences are still calling your attention!

I also want to be clear that continuing to explore the Demartini Method® is NOT a requirement of being a Certified Synergetic Play Therapist or Certified Synergetic Play Provider. This methodology was introduced in the Advanced Self Mastery program because I have yet to come across a more powerful tool for integration and my commitment to you was to help something in you shift/heal/grow, etc. And, introducing a methodology without providing a way for you to continue to use it or get more training in it also didn’t feel fair, so I have put together the following information/opportunities to help you out!

Please let me or the SPTI team know if you have any questions!

Love,

Lisa


Here is a list of facilitators who offer one-on-one support and I know would love to support you:

Dave Tuck: dave@drdavetuck.com
Donna Parker: donna.parker@comcast.net
Mary Margaret Hagen: mary@playfulpathscounseling.com
Rebecca Juan: rebajean28@hotmail.com

Peter Bliss: businessisbliss@pacific.net.au
Andy Campbell: info@andycampbell.com.au
Claire Henderson: claire@growinginspirations.com.au
Mili Sarmiento Shoemaker: shoemakermili@gmail.com

Last but not least, as I mentioned, this course has been approved as “a fast track” into the Demartini Method® Training Program! In addition to what you just experienced, you will also need to meet with me for another 3 hour webinar where we will review the columns and I will teach you the process for integrating grief/loss. You will be required to submit a special certificate from me that I will provide at the end of the 3 hour webinar.

*Even if you aren’t interested in attending the Demartini Method® Training Program, you are still welcome to attend this 3-hour webinar if you would like to further your learning!

Mark your calendar for the 3-hour webinar with me: DATE/TIME TBD Mountain Time (Denver). You will receive an email from info@synergeticplaytherapy.com with an invitation to register for this course after the Advanced Self Mastery program ends.

The 2024 Dates for the Demartini Method® Training Program are as follows:
November 13-17, 2024 : United Kingdom/South Africa

Advanced Self Mastery Program – Demartini Method Research

At the end of Day 2/beginning of Day 3, you will be asked to participate in research the Institute is conducting on the Demartini Method®.

Some of the principles underlying the founding of the Demartini Method® were significant influences on the creation of the principles of Synergetic Play Therapy®, and for that reason, the SPTI is conducting an evaluation of the Demartini Method® in hopes of collecting data that shows just how effective the Demartini Method® is in helping individuals integrate personal experiences as well as increase individuals’ gratitude.

There will be a pre and post questionnaire as part of this study. The questionnaire is completely confidential, and should only take about 5 minutes to complete. Your participation is completely voluntary but greatly appreciated!

Please find the “PRE” questionnaire link below:

https://playtherapy.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5u2NKijIcEuW6Bo

Following completion of the Advanced Self Mastery program, you will be asked to complete the “POST” questionnaire using the link below. Please do not complete the questionnaire below until AFTER you have completed the Demartini Method® day on June 28, 2024!
