Setting Boundaries in the Playroom with Dysregulated Children

This 2-hour, pre-recorded video course supports play therapists as they learn about setting boundaries from a neurobiological perspective, keeping the child’s brain and nervous system activation in mind! Drawing from Interpersonal Neurobiology and Synergetic Play Therapy, participants will learn how to set boundaries without shaming the child or stopping the child’s play, allowing for deeper integration and connection. We will also explore working with emotional flooding (the child’s and the therapist’s).

This course is a recording of a live 2-hour webinar with Crossroads Family Counseling Center.
