About the Conference

You guessed it! Upon participant request, we have expanded our one-day experiential conference to a two-day event. Content will demonstrate how StoryPlayŽ, an Ericksonian, resiliency-focused, multi-cultural model of Play Therapy has been used to successfully treat children, adolescents and families who have been psychologically and emotionally impacted by trauma, attachment issues, grief and loss, autism, sensory disregulation, and PTSD. Join our commitment to healing trauma through resilience. The neuro-importance of metaphor, creativity and play with be central themes throughout.
