The National Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children (TLC) announced this week that Art and Play Therapists can receive a reduced rate to attend this year’s Childhood Trauma Practitioner’s Assembly in July. Jeffery Georgi (this year’s keynote) will be presenting on The Adolescent Brain, as well as other presenters offering best practices in trauma informed work with children and adolescents. Check out the details below and visit this page to register with the discounted rate.
My workshop Group Strategies for Youth Exposed to Domestic Violence will focus on strategies and interventions important to facilitating group work with children and adolescents who have been impacted by domestic violence:
- Learn practical tools and important themes to consider when working with youth exposed to domestic violence;
- Be introduced to interventions that incorporate sensory-based intervention, therapeutic books, and art expression;
- Gain a trauma informed understanding about how these strategies and interventions can promote safety, emotional expression, coping, validation, and normalizing when working with youth from violent homes;
- Engage in activities and experientials to enhance your awareness and insight about the benefits of using hands-on and creative interventions in group work with traumatized youth.
I hope to see you in July!
