Taster Session of Theraplay®  techniques and practice

Posted · Add Comment

Come along to our new and exciting session for Adoptive Parents to hear about the benefits of Theraplay, incorporating a demonstration of Theraplay techniques and practice.

Tuesday 17th October 2017 from 7pm – 8.30pm

Theraplay is a child and family therapy for building and enhancing attachment, self-esteem, trust in others, and joyful engagement. It is based on the natural patterns of playful, healthy interaction between parent and child and is personal, physical, and fun. Theraplay interactions focus on four essential qualities found in parent-child relationships: Structure, Engagement, Nurture, and Challenge. Theraplay sessions create an active, emotional connection between the child and parent or caregiver, resulting in a changed view of the self as worthy and lovable and of relationships as positive and rewarding.  And it’s good fun!

Please bring along a mat/blanket to the session!
