Course Description:

Superhero play naturally emerges in the context of play therapy. Affiliated with power/control, mastery, and rescue play themes, superhero play offers powerful opportunities for healing and integration. In this highly experiential playshop, participants will learn how to transform this everyday play into creative play interventions that deepen the process of play therapy. Participants will engage in integrative activities aimed at empowering children using a combination of drama, art, narrative, and other creative expression interventions. Join the fun and dress as your favorite hero! (The winner will receive a prize!)
