Managing Big Behaviors and Feelings through Art
Sometimes even tried-and-true strategies don’t work when addressing big behaviors and feelings in children.
Accessing the versatility of art can benefit play therapists when children do not respond to traditional
approaches. In this workshop, play therapists will learn accessible arts-based strategies to integrate into play
therapy sessions as well as teach parents to use at home as an avenue for connection and emotional regulation.
After the session, participants will be able to:
- Describe 2 or more arts-based strategies for containing a challenging behavior exhibited by a child or
adolescent in play therapy.
- Develop a play therapy intervention plan featuring 2 or more arts-based interventions for promoting
problem solving in young people who exhibit challenging behaviors.
- List 3 art-based strategies that play therapists can teach parents to use at home to promote
connection or contain challenging behaviors.
- Describe 3 brain-based reasons arts approaches are ef fective at building connection and calming
emotions during a traumatic-stress reaction.
