About the event

Program Description:

In this workshop, we will be reviewing different racial identity development models to understand how we as humans move through different stages of  change to understand our own racial identity as well as those of others. We will discuss how to create anti-racist clinical spaces for the play therapy session as well as understand how to identify our own racial identity development to minimize harm in the playroom. Lastly, we will look at body and sensory oriented play techniques to aid in healing racial wounds. Time will be reserved for questions and answers to process the material presented.
