Free 3-Day Specialist Training in Group Theraplay® for Practitioners
FREE 3-DAY SPECIALIST TRAINING in GROUP THERAPLAY® for PRACTITIONERS BASED IN DUBLIN SOUTH CITY CYPSC AREA
Dublin City South CYPSC and Reflecting Minds, in collaboration with Solamh and The Theraplay Institute, with support from the Healthy Ireland Fund, are pleased to offer this unique learning opportunity for those work with children and families in the Dublin City South CYPSC Area.
Group Theraplay® is an adult-directed, structured play group that incorporates playful, cooperative and nurturing activities that enhance the emotional well-being of children. Unlike other play group approaches, Theraplay® learning takes place on a non-verbal level. Instead of talking about positive social behaviour, the group leaders and children DO positive social interaction. Positive messages from the group interaction gradually become a part of the child’s internal sense of self. A Theraplay® Group can be delivered, structured and tailored to meet the identified unique needs of a community of place and/or interest.
We are inviting expressions of interests from those who work with children and families in the Dublin City South CYPSC Area, and we are particularly interested in hearing from those with prior experience of working with groups and/or are currently working with families who have, are currently, are transitioning out of homelessness. Applicants are asked to complete the attached Expression of Interest form and return it by email by Friday 18th June 2021, at 12 noon. Further information about this training can be found in the attached document entitled “About Group Theraplay and This Training”.
Please note, this in-person training will be held in a safe and comfortable Dublin City venue, and will adhering to all HSE and Government guidelines with respect to COVID-19.
