Workshop 4: Play Therapy in Preschool Setting (EL)
Trainer: Belinda Seet
Child Centered Play Therapy is a non-directive and non-intrusive way of helping children who suffer nearly every type of presenting problem or condition from intellectually or physically challenged to those experiencing situational adjustment problems.
Play is a natural vehicle for children to learn and explore their environment, but an adult can use this vehicle to assist children to work out their traumas, anxieties, rage and rejection through symbolic and metaphoric expressions.
Participants in this very short workshop will be able to understand the factors that make Play Therapy a rewarding experience for those involved in this process.
