Listening When You'd Rather Not: Bridging Divides
As therapists we have skills and experience in helping warring couples find a way back to each other. Remembering to use those skills when we ourselves are experiencing moral outrage is not easy. In this age of extreme polarization, one of the hardest things for us and most people, has been to listen to people whose core beliefs we do not share. What if we love or care about people when we don’t like or respect parts of them? What if the core belief systems of others in our countries are actually abhorrent to us?
This webinar is meant to be participatory. There will be mini-lectures, break-out rooms, video clips of my interviews with leaders in social justice organizations and with top couples therapists including Harville Hendrix and Helen LaKelly Hunt, Stan Tatkin, Bill Doherty and Hedy Schleifer. This workshop is an opportunity to use our hearts and skills to work together to help ourselves, our family and friends, our clients and our community.
Cheryl Dolinger Brown, LCSW, has been practicing as a psychotherapist in New York City for forty years with individuals, couples and groups in addition to presenting workshops/webinars and supervising therapists. She has trained in Imago Relationship Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, PACT, Doherty Approach including Discernment Counseling and The Tapping Method.

Survives from Trauma, Thrives in Drama: Incorporating Trauma-Informed Play Therapy with Children and Adolescents
As many play therapists may know- or really, any of us who once walked the halls of middle school, drama is a culture of childhood and adolescence. Beneath the drama of catty comments and backhanded compliments often lies a foundation built on complex trauma. Drama is another word for play, and as is often the case, external drama can offer a mask to underlying trauma ingrained in a person’s psyche. Adolescence is hard enough. It is a time of uncertainty, of transition, of multiple changes into the unfamiliar and unknown. Add in the pervasive effects of complex trauma- multiple traumatic events or exposure, and viola! You have concocted a perfect storm of tumultuous teen angst. This training aims to examine the underlying factors of complex trauma, as this form of developmental trauma influences all facets of a young person’s life. Play therapists can benefit from a three-phase play therapy approach to stabilizing that traumatized child or teen, addressing underlying trauma themes and helping the young person reconnect with self, others, and the world around them. As deep-seated as trauma can be, it can defy any language to describe it. Play therapists can use the language of play to cross these barriers and help the child client access and share their story.
February 2: 1:45 pm – 4:45 pm EST
The Game of Life: Using Video Games and Board Games in Play Therapy
Games provide opportunities in both directive play therapy approaches as well as a fun and interactive outlet for more non-directive interventions within the play therapy room. While the average play therapist may be no stranger to traditional board games, or games created for therapists by therapists, additional opportunities exist for the use of games in play therapy. This training will introduce less traditional board games which can be used to promote play therapy goals, discussing the benefit of using these types of games with clients who appear resistant as well as older children and adolescents. As recent trends illustrate the growing importance of technology within the language of play today, this training will also explore how to therapeutically, and ethically, use video games as play therapy interventions.
