Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the six core strengths of the brain as identified by Dr. Bruce Perry.
  • Describe the stress response system and how this system operates in traumatized children in play therapy.
  • Identify and describe how traumatized children in play therapy move across the dissociative continuum.
