Lessons from the Playroom

Aug 13, 2020

"When a child comes into play therapy, we are not working with their chronological age, but their emotional age." - Lisa Dion

When our clients come to session it is easy to get caught up in thinking that they are their age, when in fact, they are not their age.  At least not their chronological age.  This episode is dedicated to helping you begin to understand the difference between emotional age and chronological age, a few clues to help you spot emotional age and regression, and how to work with these younger states in both your clients and yourself when they arise in the play room.
