Grief Soup & Other Play Therapy Interventions for Loss
October 22, 2016

This workshop offers an overview of grief in children and teens. The instructor will discuss common experiences of loss and will lead the participants through a series of experiential and expressive arts Play Therapy techniques, which can be used with clients. Participants will explore loss throughout their lives as an anchor for their work. We will also explore ambiguous grief and complicated grief. Learn why some children appear to move through grief quickly and others have a delayed response. We'll sort through facts and fables and explore the process of meaning-making.

LEVEL  Beginner & Intermediate; LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
  • Delineate the grief process
  • Discuss cultural differences in grief
  • Explain the benefits of expressive arts and Play Therapy
  • Describe the steps in at least three Play Therapy techniques for grief
Dr. Keller volunteered at the Children's Bereavement Center of South Texas, where she offered a large variety of play therapy to children who were grieving siblings, parents, and other close relatives. She also co-facilitated the group for parents grieving children. 

Check our website store again next week. We will be uploading video and audio recordings of the other webinars we've offered.
