This experiential workshop, held in person at The Bouverie Centre, focuses on creative and expressive ways of working systemically and therapeutically with children and families. Therapists and workers often work with children or adult members of families but do not feel confident in seeing younger children in sessions with parents and adolescent/older siblings. This workshop considers the rationale for including children and play in family therapy and explores a range of creative techniques for involving all family members in sessions where there are children present.  We will also be considering guidelines and resources for the use of telehealth when working with children in families.

Activities including art/drawing, sand play, the use of hand puppets, St. Luke’s cards and storytelling are some of the fun and therapeutic interventions we will be using.

You are invited to share your practice wisdom and ideas for integrating play and work with families

Suitable for

Clinicians who are working therapeutically with families and wish to enhance their skills in play and creative therapies that consider the needs and expressive capacities of children.
