Course Description:

Are your clients having anger outbursts, meltdowns, crying spells or long, intense moments of hyperactive joy? This is dysregulation, and it doesn’t feel good!

Join Tracy Turner-Bumberry, LPC, RPT-S, in this interactive seminar to teach you art, movement and play therapy interventions to help regulate clients with Autism, ADHD, Bipolar and Anxiety. You will practice techniques during this program to experience for yourself how to achieve calm, cool and relaxed children and adolescents. Leave this workshop armed with a tool kit of Play Therapy interventions to reduce meltdowns, mood swings, anger outbursts and create sustained emotion regulation.

You will learn how play is a therapeutic and natural way for children who have limited verbal skills to express their needs and frustrations.

Play allows children to:
  • Experience and express emotion
  • Become more responsible for behaviors and develop more successful strategies
  • Develop new and creative solutions to problems
  • Reduce fear, anxiety and depression

As the great philosopher Plato says, “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”
Objectives:
  1. Assess and describe key dysregulation issues in clients that affect their physical and emotional well-being.
  2. Recognize symptoms of dysregulation in Autism, ADHD, bipolar and anxiety disorders.
  3. Define “intentional practice” and explain its role towards creating sustained regulation in clients.
  4. Practice “instant regulator” interventions to help create an immediate calm therapy environment.
  5. Learn play therapy interventions that can easily be replicated to reduce client meltdowns and mood swings at home and school.
  6. Discover 3 strategies to reduce anger outbursts to sustain emotion regulation.
