For Pastors and Christian Leaders
Topic: Child-Centered and Directive Play Therapy
Arden Woods is pleased to announce that we are opening a child/play therapy center within the clinic to expand our offerings in this area. In conjunction with this, a new therapist in our clinic, Patricia Sandkamp, MA, LMFT, will share an overview of her approach to Play Therapy, which is called Child-Centered and Directive Play Therapy. Patricia has worked in the mental health care field with a focus on early childhood and school aged children since 2016, coming out of a background which has been supportive of the well-being and healthful development of children and families for many years. According to the International Association for Play Therapy, play is the language of children and is therefore an important avenue for child focused mental health professionals to engage with and support mental health interventions when working with children. In this presentation, Patricia will be exploring growth challenges from the perspective of the child, therapy strategies developed to directly engage and impact a child, and benefits play therapy offers including the impact on primary caregivers.
***Please note that this session is on the third weekend in March instead of the normal second weekend.
