Fee: $99 for 4 Direct Contact APT CE’s (Due to COVID-19 health concerns, this one-time online event has been approved by APT for 4 CONTACT CE Hours.)

Anger and aggression are common themes in play therapy and are vital in Gestalt Play Therapy. However, many therapists are uncomfortable addressing anger or allowing it to “play out” in the playroom. This interactive playshop will explore the theoretical underpinnings of the role of aggressive energy in the playroom and identify methods to safely access and contain aggressive energy and associated triggers using body-centered engagements.
