Minnesota Association for Play Therapy Annual Conference
Come join therapist, attachment and trauma expert, and author Marshall Lyles, LPC-S, LMFT-S, RPT-S as he trains on Trauma, Attachment, and Sand Based Play Therapy!
Sandtray therapy provides a particularly expressive form of play therapy that is useful for clients of all ages and abilities, making it an efficient tool for arts and play therapists, counselors, and others. Since not all play or arts therapists have received specific instruction in the nuances of sandtray utilization—especially in the area of safely holding any attachment traumas that are likely to appear in tray creation and processing—this workshop will highlight principles from the relational neurosciences and attachment and trauma-informed clinical theories as they relate to the integration of sandtray into parts-based trauma work. The focus will be on considering the person of the client and treatment plan components so that resilient and wounded parts are all welcomed into the process.
This 1 Day workshop will be interactive and experiential.
