This equipping module is an opportunity for those looking to dive deeper into facilitating play in the realm of attachment, expression and emotional playgrounds. This module will be more experiential in nature as we build on the theoretical material of the Neufeld Institute Play Series. In addition to class time and small group discussions, there will be an experiential weekly exercise component.

Prerequisite courses are: Intensive I, Intensive II, Science of Emotion, and the Neufeld Institute Play series (Play 101, Play and Attachment, Play and Emotion). Alternatively, an equivalent combination of prerequisites are Playful Therapy: Matchmaking Play and Emotion (in-person event July, 2023) and the Play and Attachment course.

Suitability & Applicability

Suitability: Open to all those who work with children, adolescents and adults and would like to apply play to your practice (eg. as counsellor, child care worker, educator, parent, grandparent, etc.).
