Lessons from the Playroom

Oct 26, 2021

We’re doing something different in this episode! … This time, Lisa is joined by three important people in her life - three Certified Synergetic Play Therapists, for a discussion of some of the challenges we might face as a play therapist. 

Take time to pause, reflect and find out what to do when a child/client:

  • tries to take care of the therapist;
  • does not turn on their screen during a teletherapy session (and what is really necessary for attunement to occur - the answer might surprise you); 
  • struggles with transitions, including not wanting to leave a parent’s side or not wanting to leave the playroom when it’s time to go.

*Special guests: Certified Synergetic Play Therapists,  Andrea Davidson (Colorado), Johanna Simmons (Vancouver, British Columbia), and Rachel Freeburg (Oregon).
