Lessons from the Playroom

Jun 12, 2021

Lisa discusses the truth about death and dying in the playroom and gives ideas and tips for what to do when these experiences show up in our child client’s play. She gives answers to the many questions therapists have asked such as:

  • What’s the point of death & dying play for children in the playroom?
  • How do we stay present with ourselves in the midst of activation and dysregulation when a child offers an experience of death and dying?
  • How do we deepen into the vulnerability and stay connected to ourselves in what may feel like an uncomfortable experience to promote integration?
