Integrating Sensory Motor Arousal Regulation Treatment (SMART) and Theraplay for Embodied Healing

Date and Time of Workshop: Thursday 06/06/2024 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Location: Sheraton Norfolk Waterfront Hotel, Norfolk, VA

Conference: Mid-Atlantic Play Therapy Conference

Presenters: Heather Finn and Myriam Goldin

This daylong master class introduces play therapists, counselors, and psychotherapists working with children and families to the foundational principles of two child-centered and trauma-informed treatment modalities: Sensory Motor Arousal Regulation Treatment (SMART) and Theraplay. We will explore how these approaches can be used in play therapy and other clinical settings to help children and their families heal from the impacts of trauma. In particular, we will consider how these methods can be woven together  to promote effective, sequential healing and healthy attachments from the “bottom up.” Attention will be given to discussing commonalities between these modalities, as well as unique ways each method contributes to supporting regulation and attachment building in the playroom as well as in other treatment settings. Learning methods will include didactic presentations, clinical video examples, and the opportunity for movement-based, experiential learning. For use in play therapy and other treatment situations with young clients and their families, clinicians at all levels of experience are invited to attend.
