About the training
This course will investigate how we might use the basic skills to develop our ability to work (and stay with) metaphor. We will explore theories (and stages) of play and explore the implications for the relationship in the room. We will also cover the self and play and, through the experiential work on the day, examine how our attitude to ‘play’ might impact on the counselling relationship for counsellor and the child. The day will be structured primarily around the experiential work so don’t dress up!
