The Neurobiology of Play Therapy: A Synergetic Approach – HPP 02
In an optimal environment, most children will experience a healthy developmental process and not exhibit signs of overwhelming distress and emotional imbalances. Unfortunately, parenting is not common sense as many people expect. In a world filled with many distractions, it’s quite easy to mis-attune to our children and have significant issues surface that need attention.
In this episode, we dive into the world of children and what can happen to their nervous system when their needs aren’t consistently met. Our guest, Lisa Dion, founder and CEO of the Play Therapy Institute of Colorado and Synergetic Play therapy talks to us about authenticity and authentic expression as a Play Therapy clinicians, why your own “window of tolerance” matters more than your think, and instruction during play and when it undermines a child’s growth.
And we’re not just talking about Play Therapy here, even though it’s a very important application of this episode. This information applies to parents every where who are trying to learn the most effective ways to help their children grow in a healthy manner.Listen to Episode
