Description

Despite your best efforts and applying various tools in the toolbox of “therapy techniques”, do you continue to struggle with some clients?

Do you wonder if there’s some new approach that you can integrate to make better headway?

By incorporating Play and Creativity in your work, you can improve treatment outcomes with your clients.

Don’t miss this rare seminar with Daniel Siegel, M.D., and learn how to incorporate Play and Creativity into your practice. Dr. Siegel is the New York Times bestselling author of Whole Brain Child, Brainstorm, No Drama Discipline and Mindsight and the leading expert on the confluence of interpersonal neurobiology, mindfulness and psychotherapy.

You’ll learn how you can use play for the clinical evaluation of a child, adolescent, or adult, because how a person plays reveals ways in which mental well-being may be present or impaired. You’ll discover how easy it is to incorporate play techniques and other creative approaches such as rhythmic movement, non-verbal alignment, improvisation and musical vocalizations into your practice.

To give you even more practical application, Dr. Siegel will demonstrate play activities that are used with huge success in the treatment of:

  • PTSD
  • OCD
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Depression
