November 16 @ 9:00 am - November 17 @ 4:30 pm
$695 Sold out

DUE TO THE CONTINUED UNCERTAINTY REGARDING COVID-19, THIS WORKSHOP WILL NOW BE RUN ONLINE

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.

“Imagine, Create, Belong”: a new intervention for adolescents with social difficulties (2 day online workshop) 21-22 JANUARY 2021

January 21, 2021 @ 9:00 am - January 22, 2021 @ 4:30 pm
$695 23 tickets left

This 2 day workshop is for those who work with older children and young adolescents. Research using Learn to Play Therapy has been extended to work with adolescents who experience social difficulties. It has been assumed that abilities underpinning pretend play ability are no longer relevant to young adolescents. This is now disputed with evidence emerging that abilities underpinning pretend play are important for social competence and learning in adolescence.

This workshop would be valuable for those working with young adolescents who have social difficulties including social workers, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, specialist teachers of young adolescents, psychologists and play therapists.
