No matter what a child may be struggling with, when attempts at talking through a problem do not work, using alternative approaches for connecting will often prove more helpful. This workshop explores creative ways of engaging and communicating with children (ages 3-12) and their natural support systems. Participants will learn practical skills based on the expressive arts (play, art, drama) and integrative body-based techniques (mindfulness, sensory, and whole-brain activities) that promote and build resilience in children. Informed by attachment theories, developmental psychology, family therapy, and neuroscience, this training uses a variety of experiential exercises, role-plays, and interactive activities to enhance participant learning.
