In this experiential workshop, trainees learn the robust healing potential of calming the nervous system through practical application in Play Therapy with attention to neuroscience pertaining to emotions, communication and the social engagement system.  Since the autonomic nervous system impacts children's capacity to manage stress, navigate relationships, and regulate emotional states, a deeper understanding of the brain/body connection through the lens of attachment theory supports emotional wellness.
