Therapeutic play is a specific approach to engage children, because it is a developmentally sensitive way to communicate and facilitate expression of the child’s thoughts and feelings, and may be applied to medical and health care settings and experiences. Therapeutic medical play may also be used proactively to prepare children before and to debrief after medical encounters, and using specific approaches during procedural phases.

This two day workshop integrates knowledge of paediatric medical and health care, childhood development and therapeutic play. It has been developed to extend the clinical skills of health care professionals who work with children and their families in health care settings.

DUE TO SMALL REGISTRATION NUMBERS THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE RESCHEDULED. PLEASE EMAIL learntoplayevents@gmail.com WITH EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST.

Learn to Play Therapy aims to develop the capacity in children to self-initiate their own pretend play. Being able to play is essential to children because through play children learn about themselves and their world. Pretend play is complex play and research evidence has shown that children who develop more complex levels of pretend play increase in their abilities in social competence, narrative language, language, self-regulation, creativity, and problem solving.

This workshop would be valuable to therapists, social workers, psychologists and early intervention workers who work with families with children under 8 years of age who have a developmental delay.
