Adventures in 3D - Creating with 3D Materials for Self-Affirmation and Self-Expression with a Special Emphasis on Play Therapy Process
Location: The Ecumenical Center, 8310 Ewing Halsell Dr., San Antonio, TX
Summary: Making things can be a powerful part of the play therapy process. Hard, soft, smooth, rough, heavy, or light – materials we can hold in our hands have a special and important meaning in our healing process. For a long time, we have known the importance of touch in development and healing. We learned to our amazement that tiny babies, in spite of being well fed, could fade away and die without touch and stimulation.
But how to offer that experience to our clients in this age of touch-less therapy? Even if you have made peace with appropriate and healing touch as a part of counseling, your client may not be able to accept it. This workshop is about discovering the power of bringing 3D materials into your counseling practice and enriching the play therapy process with easy, creative materials.
Play-Doh process, wood assemblage, wire sculpture, and newspaper & tape constructions are the experiences being offered to you in this mini-summer retreat – simple to use, inexpensive to obtain, and invaluable to restoring hopefulness, confidence, and positive energy to you and your clients. Come and have an awesome Adventure in 3D!
