Day 1:  Integrating Play Therapy into Evidence-Based Treatment for Traumatized Children

There have been a number of treatments developed and tested in recent years specifically geared to treating traumatized children.  These approaches share many of the same core components:  Engaging clients; conducting a systemic assessment; providing psychoeducation; addressing children and families traumatic stress reactions; enhancing safety skills; and strenghtening parenting skills.  The effectiveness of trauma-treatments with children is enhances by integrating playful, developmentally appropriate interventions so clients will engage in treatment.  This workshop will present innovative techniques for each of the core components of evidenced-based trauma treatment.  Participants will come away with many new and creative interventions they can use with clients from preschoolers to teens.

Day 2:  Creative Interventions for Children and Families Coping with Loss

This dynamic workshop will present an innovative model for working with children and families coping with loss.  Structured assessment and treatment techniques will be illustrated for use in inidvidual, group, and family therapy.  Participants will come away with many innovative techniques. Although the focus will be on bereavement, divorce, and foster care, interventions can be adapted for use with a variety of other populations.
