Transitions are everywhere, in the expected and the unexpected. As a play therapist, it’s important to be prepared to help our clients with transitions – such as divorce, death, a move, new sibling, or sensory challenges – that often bring them to our playroom.
In this course, Lisa Dion and Susan Stutzman explore how to navigate transitions and change in the play therapy setting. Participants will walk away having gained an understanding of current neurobiological research that supports an understanding of how transitions can trigger a threat response in the brain causing activation of the autonomic nervous system.
From a neurobiological lens, the therapist will gain knowledge of how to best navigate the challenges of transitions that bring clients to play therapy and learn ways to navigate change and transition that happens during the therapeutic play process itself. Clinical applications for working through transitioning within professional working relationships will be touched on.
