BT12 Short Course 58 – StoryPlay® Therapy: Gems of Change for Accessing and Utilizing Inner Resources for Healing Childhood Trauma – Joyce Mills, PhD
This experiential workshop will present an essential element of StoryPlay®, an Ericksonian, resiliency-based, indirective process of Play Therapy that focuses upon how to identify, access and utilize inner resources, skills, and gifts as invaluable “gems” to move us beyond diagnosis and effect transformational change for children and adolescents who have experienced trauma and adversity.
With the healing power of therapeutic metaphors and the neuro-importance of play at its center, Story-Play®, a new Ericksonian, resiliency-based “indirective” model of play therapy provides participants with hands-on, creative tools for working with children and adolescents who experience phobias, medical issues, abuse, and trauma in a variety of settings to include private practice, hospitals, and the classroom. Case examples and experiential exercises will highlight how StoryPlay® can be effectively utilized with specialized populations or situations.
With the neuro-healing power of metaphor, creativity and play at its center, this experiential training presents StoryPlay® ; an Ericksonian, resiliency-based, indirective process that interweaves cultural diversity and natural healing abilities, to effect transformational change for children and adolescents who have experienced trauma and adversity.
