What will I get out of this play therapy training workshop?

Learn how to assess and understand family interactions through a play therapy lens. This family play therapy workshop helps participants integrate play therapy and family therapy theories. Dr. Emily Keller, Co-Director and Vice President of Southeast Institute for Group and Family Therapy, will share the benefits of integrating the two modalities. Dr. Keller applies family play therapy with families that include children of all ages — even grown children. 

At this workshop, she will offer creative play therapy interventions to assess for and break up dysfunctional family patterns. PLUS: Participants will receive a printed copy of her e-booklet Cooperative Families and printable handouts to use with families. Help shift families from competition to cooperation by understanding how to move them from a scarcity mindset to an abundance mindset. Participants will practice play therapy techniques. Join us for this fun, interactive workshop!
