Introduction to Humanistic Play Therapy

An introductory day long training!

Dublin 9th March 18: Limerick 20th April 18            Fee €110 

This experiential day will introduce participants to non-directive play therapy skills and practice.

However, participants will develop skills which can be used to enhance relationships with children with whom they have contact in their personal and/or professional life. Participants will also experience the power of play in a very personal way.

A Natural Space for Healing

Due to the incredible success of the Easter School 2014, Maggie Fearn is returning  to Ireland to deliver the 3 day course again in 2015! Very limited places so early booking is essential.

Easter School 2015: 30th March – 1st April 2015

Understanding the relationship between movement and perception is particularly vital to those working in therapeutic relationships with children, because children’s natural medium of communication and expression is a dynamic and subtle process of cue and response within a myriad of environmental stimuli. Being able to tune in on this level of environmental awareness provides opportunities for healing communication.

Underpinning theory draws on the embodiment, projection, role (EPR) dynamic (Jennings, 1999), narrative techniques (Gersie, 1997; Sunderland, 2000) and somatic theory (Bainbridge Cohen, 2008; Olsen, 2002; McHose & Frank, 2006).

Day 1: Understanding a Natural Space for Healing (Theory and Practice)
Play and emotional development: a sensory journey
The influence of environment
Sensory attachment and the development of emotional awareness

Learning Outcomes:
• Review theory that explains the relationship between emotion, perception and attachment
• Explore sensory relationship through play
• Explore inside and outside environments with our senses

Day 2: Exploring a Natural Space for Healing (Practical experiential sessions)
The role of the practitioner in therapeutic outdoor play:
Somatic observation of self
Exploring sensory information
The importance of nonverbal communication

You will have the time and space in which to experience total immersion in sensory awareness and playful relationship drawing on the teaching of movement specialists, nature awareness educators, and creators of environmental art and stories, in a process that combines self discovery, inspiration, and guidance for transferring knowledge and skills into therapeutic practice with children.

Learning Outcomes:
• Experience our physiological response to our environment in relation to somatic theory
• Understand how perceptive awareness can support children’s emotional development and resilience
• Take away a range of simple ideas that support immersion in the natural world and access sensory awareness

Day 3: Developing a Natural Space for Healing (Experiential, discussion and review)
Encouraging the use of outdoor/indoor spaces, natural materials and everyday objects in creating a therapeutic playspace. Exploring the practicalities, and relevant considerations.

Learning Outcomes:
• To understand how to transfer learning into providing a therapeutic space.
• To begin to develop your own strategies and ideas.
• To take away a plan for developing a natural space for healing within your practice.
