 Introduction                                                                                                                                                      Therapeutic Art & Play can provide safe ways to help clients of all ages express themselves. Much inner healing can occur through using crayons or paints to demonstrate feelings which lie too deep for words. The third space of the sandtray can provide insight into family dynamics or allow a person to work through a trauma in a safe way. Puppets can become a vehicle for an inner small voice that needs to be heard. This workshop will provide practitioners with an opportunity to experience how it feels to use art and therapeutic play from the perspective of both practitioner and client.
