The Tools of TraumaPlay: Play Therapy for Traumatized Children

TraumaPlay™ is a flexibly sequential play therapy model that combines both directive and non-directive methods into an integrated framework for treating children and families with trauma and attachment issues. Grounded in an understanding of the neurobiology of trauma and the neurobiology of play and the power of one to heal the other, TraumaPlay™ offers a series of treatment goals that mirror those of other evidence-based trauma models, such as TF-CBT, while delivering treatment primarily through play-based interventions. This three hour workshop will provide an overview of the model, illustrate this work with case examples and offer a multitude of immediately usable play therapy interventions that can be integrated into clinical practice.

After the workshop participants will be able to:

  1. List the seven core components of TraumaPlay™
  2. Describe at least one play therapy intervention that can be used in pursuit of each treatment goal
  3. Explain the concept of containment as it is used in this play therapy model
  4. List the options of the Play Therapist’s Palette for titration work
