Group Theraplay training is for professionals who want to use Theraplay in classrooms, day care, residential settings or with family groups. There is a One-Day option for those who have taken Level One Theraplay & MIM and a Two-Day option for those who have not.
A Theraplay Group is an adult-directed, structured play group that iincorporates playful, cooperative and nurturing activities that enhance the emotional well-being of children. Unlike other play group approaches, Theraplay learning takes place on a non-verbal llevel. Instead of talking about positive social behavior, the group leaders and children DO positive social interaction. Positive messages from the group interaction gradually become a part of the child’s internal sense of self.
