Lessons from the Playroom

Dec 2, 2020

We’ve all experienced the “test” in the playroom. Is it personal? Is it not personal? How do we make sense of it?

Lisa discusses this natural occurrence that happens in relationships, the importance of authenticity and congruence (and what that even means), and ultimately how to “show up” when the therapist is “tested.”

Tune in as we discuss what the “test” is really all about and the two very important questions that children are asking – “Can I be me?” and “Will you be you?”
