Making it Work: Putting the Play in Play Therapy with Jill Bellinson at MITPP

Posted November 21st, 2017 by Tamar Schwartz
Categories: Announcements

THE METROPOLITAN INSTITUTE FOR TRAINING IN PSYCHOANALYTIC PSYCHOTHERAPY, THE METROPOLITAN CENTER FOR MENTAL HEALTH, and THE METROPOLITAN SOCIETY FOR PSYCHOANALYTIC PSYCHOTHERAPISTS invite you to

A CLINICAL WORKSHOP MAKING IT WORK: PUTTING THE PLAY IN PLAY THERAPY SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2017
PRESENTER: JILL BELLINSON, Ph.D.

Child therapists are drawn to the work because children seem innocent and appealing and eager to relate. They become expert at making an alliance with children and joining in the play that children engage in so energetically. Then someone — child, parent, or therapist’s inner voice — worries, “All we do is play!” This workshop will explore whether play is all we do, whether play is enough to do, and how to create play that is truly therapeutic. Clinical examples will be offered by the instructor and welcomed from the participants. Read the rest of this post »
