Play therapists’ knowledge of the type, quality, and complexity of play that are typical for a child at each developmental level is imperative to clinical assessment and treatment planning. This workshop will provide an overview of key developmental milestones across childhood and adolescence with an added focus on play behavior at each developmental phase. Assessment and treatment planning implications for typical and atypical play behavior at each stage will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

1- Recognize and distinguish typical and atypical play behavior based on developmental levels for children from birth to adolescence

2- Recognize and distinguish typical and atypical developmental indicators for social, emotional, physical, and educational development for children age birth to adolescence

3- Consider influence of developmental observations on assessment and diagnosis in play therapy

Attachment in Couples Therapy: Country Music Edition

Music speaks to us and for us in powerful ways that can’t be duplicated through other means. Sue Johnson, the founder of EFT, describes adult attachment dynamics as a “dance”, and our job as couples therapists is to learn to listen to the attachment dance and help the couple learn the steps of a secure attachment dance. 

I once heard it said that there is a country song for every occasion. I am not sure about “every” occasion, though it is quite possible. However, there are definitely a multitude of country songs for each attachment style and attachment injury experience. In this workshop, we will use songs to understand and connect with the human experience and expressions of romantic attachment. Treatment planning for couples, including discernment counseling and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, will be discussed for our country-music derived case studies.

Come have fun and learn with us. Singing along and dancing are allowed.
