Healing aching hearts: Using GPT to address grief, non-death grief, and unfinished business

Friday, November 4th, 2022 9:00 am- 2:30 pm CST (5 Direct Contact APT CEs); $160 This event meets APT's definition of "Live Webinar"

Description of Workshop:

Grief and traumatic loss are on the rise as society grapples with the ongoing impacts of the pandemic and pandemic-related losses. Despite the natural occurrence of grief, clinicians wrestle with treating the nuanced and pervasive effects of grief, especially disenfranchised, traumatic, and non-death grief. In this workshop, attendees will conceptualize complex grief through a GPT lens with specific play therapy interventions for making contact and integrating split-off parts, emotions, and experiences. Attendees will specifically work with unfinished business and identify family play therapy interventions that support the whole child holistically.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Differentiate between types of losses (i.e., death vs. non-death; disenfranchised; complicated) that are present in the playroom
  2. Identify play themes and play behaviors consistent in grieving children.
  3. Discuss the foundational principles of Gestalt Play Therapy and unfinished business through a GPT lens.
  4. Identify play therapy methods for healing disrupted contact patterns to increase emotional awareness and processing.
  5. Identify and practice family play therapy engagements to improve attachment with caregivers from a GPT lens.
