 Cognitive Behavioural Play Therapy: Effective treatments and techniques

 
Summary:
With Cognitive Behavioural Play Therapy, cognitive and behavioural interventions are incorporated within a play
therapy paradigm. Cognitive Behavioural Play Therapy (CBPT) provides a novel theoretical approach to child psychotherapy, in that the most significant differences between CBPT and other play therapies are its structure and psycho-educational components. Play activities as well as verbal and nonverbal forms of communication are used in resolving problems.

Cognitive Behavioural Play Therapy places a strong emphasis on the child's involvement in treatment in a way that many other behavioural therapies for young children do not. The child is thus an active participant in change. For example, children who are helped to identify and modify irrational beliefs may experience a sense of personal understanding and empowerment. Cognitive Behavioural Play Therapy is thus structured, goal orientated, short-term, collaborative with the child and its family, guided by both the child and the therapist, play based and psycho-educational.

In this workshop theory, practice and pragmatic applications of CBPT is brought to a wide range of health care practitioners.

Attachment Therapy – Key practices for treating children & families

 

Summary:
The quality of parent-child interactions early in life has consistently been a focus in psychiatry, psychology, social work and the other mental health professions. We know that nurturing, protective, and caring interactions between infants and primary caregivers not only are essential for attachment security, but also literally shape the structure and function of the child's developing brain.

While there are many effective ways to treat attachment problems, there are specific approaches that stimulate right brain activity and are important in reestablishing secure and positive attachment experiences. The most effective approaches are those that are "user friendly" and come naturally to children. The creative arts and play therapy have
a natural affinity with attachment problems in children. When early attachment experiences are disrupted by trauma, neglect, physical and sexual abuse, loss, separation from caregivers, or other factors, it becomes essential to use interventions that use forms of expression and processing to initiate and stimulate reparative processes in a brain-focused way.

In this workshop theory, practice and pragmatic applications of play therapy and creative arts therapies are brought to
a wide range of health care practitioners.

Parental Guidance: Essential tools for conquering parenting traps

Summary:

Child-Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT) is based on the filial therapy proposed by Garry Landreth and Sue Bratton, which focuses on building and maintaining healthy and effective relationships between parents and their children—through PLAY. The therapy aims to teach parents the basics skills essential in play therapy (such as listening skills
and interpretation of play) during 10 weekly sessions. CPRT training provides individuals in the social services the knowledge and skills to apply CPRT with their clients—in an interactive environment.

The12 strategies of Daniel Siegel (2011) to nurture a child's whole brain will be integrated with the CPRT to form an effective intervention strategy to guide parents effectively.

Play in Health Care


Summary:

Health issues and invasive medical procedures are frequently overlooked as a possible cause of trauma. Children do
not possess the inner resources to make sense out of medical instruments, bright lights, strong smells or more often
than not, the physical restraint that goes with medical procedures and hospital experiences. Some children are unfortunate
to develop chronic diseases or other life threatening conditions, which they must learn to deal with on a daily basis.
These unknown experiences leave them confused and vulnerable. Events like these might be internalised by the child, which might present later in life as anxiety, concentration problems and aggression.

The aim of this workshop is to assist delegates to understand the impact of health issues on the emotional functioning
of children. Different techniques will be presented to assist the child in making sense of the unknown world of medicine. Various aspects will be addressed, such as pain, body image, understanding respiratory problems and desensitisation to medical instruments. These techniques will be presented in the prescriptive play therapy framework.
