TraumaPlay™: A Flexibly Sequential Play Therapy Model for Trauma and Attachment Disturbances

TraumaPlay™ translates evidence informed trauma treatment with children into a sequence of play-based component modules that celebrate the intersection of the neurobiology of play and the neurobiology of trauma, while honoring current evidence-based approaches in the field of trauma. Click here for more, including learning objectives
