Dr. Keller offers a workshop on family play therapy in Chennai, India, (2016).

Emily Keller, PhD, LPC, RPT, offers play therapy training in North Carolina. Dr. Keller specializes in play therapy for the whole family. Also, in helping people get back in touch with “wonder.” She incorporates play therapy in family therapy sessions, to ensure that every voice is heard — because every voice matters.

Dr. Keller’s play therapy workshops have been transformative in my work with children and families.  She  offers a combination of theory and hands-on experiences that have deepened my understanding of play therapy as well as added to my repertoire of interventions.  I leave each workshop feeling a renewed excitement in my work!

The “Be in Wonder” play therapy workshop brought me back to the space where relationship naturally manifests. The parents I work with are embracing the concept of wonder and experiencing connection and joy with their adolescents, in particular — but also with one another. They are re-committing to seeing their children through the eyes of wonder and finding that it is the anecdote to judgment, disappointment, fear, and anger. Where there is wonder self-doubt, worry, and anxiety cannot exist.

This workshop is rich with direct personal experience. Dr. Keller combines film, art, and play to inform technique and theory. Her experiential approach to teaching methodology and strategy is what brings to life the key ideas of this seminar. The “Be in Wonder” workshop has helped me to refine my art — and the resulting insights that I have gained with clients and the success that we continue to experience together move me forward with great excitement and anticipation. Do not miss it!
