Need more ideas to help your play therapy clients with anxiety, ADHD and trauma heal? You, the play therapist may even feel a bit scattered and overwhelmed treating such a challenging population yourself.
Research shows the powerful effects of brain-based Mindful Meditation can have on one’s focus, memory, emotional regulation, even inflammation.
Join us as we explore parts of the brain impacted by Mindful Meditation and the benefits available for play therapy clients of all ages, including you, the play therapist.
In this 3 hour training, participants will
✅ Leave with a plan to implement playful Mindful Meditation in play therapy sessions with children, teens and adults (even for you the play therapist).
✅ Identify parts of the brain affected by routine Mindful Meditation and how this impacts your play therapy client
✅ Identify parts of the nervous system impacted by meditation (including vagus nerve) and how to help you and your play therapy clients stay regulated
✅ Explain how playful routine Mindful Meditation can be merged with sand tray therapy
