Beyond Bowlby: The Neurobiology of Attachment in Play Therapy

March 2 @ 9:00 am - March 3 @ 4:45 am

EARLY BIRD ENDS SATURDAY FEB 10!!! John Bowlby’s dramatic impact on theories of human development has continued to grow throughout the decade of the brain, leading us toward a greater understanding of the neurobiology of attachment. This intermediate two-day workshop will deepen your relationship with attachment theory, moving a left-brain categorical understanding into a whole-brain embodied experience. We will explore the foundations of attachment theory and then move into what happens neurobiologically when attachment goes wrong. Attendees will develop a felt sense for the way pockets of attachment (secure and insecure) become alive in the play therapy room, both with and without parent involvement. We will discuss ways to harness the power of attachment during individual and parent/child dyadic play therapy sessions while inviting play therapists to use their own creativity and intuition when engaging in both directive and non-directive play therapy. During our two-days together, participants will be invited to lean into their own felt sense of attachment through experiential activities.
