Delight in Me with Paris Goodyear-Brown

This workshop is aimed at helping families recapture the joy stolen by neglect, trauma, anxiety or a lack of connectedness between a caregiver and child. Core attachment principles will be translated into practical play-based strategies for helping caregivers become more connected co-regulators, stronger story-keepers, and safer bosses. Specific play therapy interventions aimed at helping caregivers and children delight in each other will be experienced.  Come prepared to play!

After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • List six core caregiving strategies (the SOOTHE strategies) that help caregivers co-regulate their children more effectively.
  • Describe three play therapy games that give children experiences of receiving nurture from their caregivers.
  • List the three healing roles caregivers can fill (the triad of trauma recovery caregiving roles)
