Training Title:
Play Therapy with Traumatized and Chaotic Young Children

Clock Hours: 1

By the time you complete this course, you should be able to: • Understand the role of the clinician with the child in a therapy session. • Increase your confidence to work with this young population. • Learn how to create a sense of trust and safety with a chaotic child • Be able to recognize the meaning in the behavior of a young child. • Appreciate the value of games to a very young child. • Learn how to balance one’s own regression, which is necessary to engage in the treatment process, with maintaining a therapeutic stance.

Beginning therapy with a small child can be confusing and intense. It requires that the therapist balance the regression necessary to engage the treatment process with maintaining a therapeutic stance. In this interview, Peter Shaft candidly describes how he was able to tolerate the experience of a young chaotic child with energy, humor, and insight. Keywords: Child, trauma, play therapy, games, food
