This experiential workshop will help participants understand the process of childhood grief, and develop an appropriate play therapy treatment plan. After reviewing child development from the perspective of grief and loss, we will look at the treatment model of Sharon Rugg’s Healing Hearts.
Describe the developmental stages of childhood, and explain how each impacts the way a child grieves
Describe a theoretical model for the treatment of loss/grief in children
Demonstrate at least three (3) interventions that may be useful in the treatment of childhood grief/loss
and develop a play therapy treatment plan based on the above model of grief/loss treatment
