    Proudly Present:

    Play for a Change: Therapeutic Action in Contemporary Child Psychotherapy

    Children learn to think, regulate emotions, have fun, heal from trauma, and find self-agency through play. However, children play less, and parents and professionals have lost sight of both the value of play in healthy development as well as play’s role in helping children work through conflicts and symptoms. Providing clinical and research evidence that reasserts that value is the goal of our conference.

    6 CE credits are offered for Saturday Workshop
