​Description:

John Bowlby’s dramatic impact on theories of human development has continued to grow throughout the decade of the brain, leading us toward a greater understanding of the neurobiology of attachment. This intermediate two-day workshop will deepen your relationship with attachment theory, moving a left-brain categorical understanding into a whole-brain embodied experience.  We will explore the foundations of attachment theory and then move into what happens neurobiologically when attachment goes wrong.  Attendees will develop a felt sense for the way pockets of attachment (secure and insecure) become alive in the play therapy room, both with and without parent involvement.  We will discuss ways to harness the power of attachment during individual and parent/child dyadic play therapy sessions while inviting play therapists to use their own creativity and intuition when engaging in both directive and non-directive play therapy.  During our two-days together, participants will be invited to lean into their own felt sense of attachment through experiential activities.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to describe the history of attachment theory and its relevance to play therapy theory

  2. Participants will be able to describe the attachment experiences that lead to the four identified categories of attachment

  3. Participants will be able to identify attachment driven behaviors observed during parent/child play therapy sessions

  4. Participants will be able to distinguish between attachment as a theoretical orientation and a clinical model of play therapy

  5. Participants will be able to identify the key points in the history of play therapy and evaluate congruence with attachment theory.

  6. Participants will be able to apply attachment theory concepts to the use of play therapy skills of tracking and reflection

  7. Participants will be able to apply attachment theory to conducting effective parent consultations as part of a play therapy treatment plan

  8. Participants will be able to apply attachment theory to conducting effective parent/child dyadic play sessions

  9. Participants will be able to execute play therapy techniques that demonstrate how Regulation Theory is an Attachment Theory

  10. Participants will be able to identify the neurobiology of the four identified categories of attachment as demonstrated through play behaviors

  11. Participants will be able to develop criteria for assessing attachment-based appropriateness before beginning parent/child dyadic play therapy.

  12. Participants will understand ways to develop neural nets of attachment when the parent is available for participation in play therapy

  13. Participants will understand ways to develop neural nets of attachment when the parent is NOT available for participation in Play Therapy

  14. Participants will experience attachment theory as an embodied experience- not a left brain list of classifications

Target Audience:

This online class is appropriate for licensed and pre-licensed mental health professionals, including psychologists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, and professional counselors.  Pre-licensed therapists must provide the name and contact information of their supervisor.

This training may be a good fit for you if...

  • You have a good foundation with attachment theory and are excited to move past lists and categories and into the felt sense of attachment.

  • You are curious about how to your own attachment experiences come alive in the therapy room.

  • You are open to individually exploring your own felt sense of attachment through both experiential and introspective processes.

  • You are willing to work with a partner to practice both the experience of witnessing and being witnessed

This training may NOT be a good fit for you if...

  • You prefer to learn through lecture and power point presentations.

  • You want to stay focused on skull-brain learning (facts) and less on heart/body-based learning.

  • You are not interested in using your own body-based felt-sense to support your work in the therapy room

  • You will feel frustrated with slower-paced learning that is intended to allow for optimal integration of the material

  • You are focused on learning as many new techniques for play therapy as possible.
