Description

While navigating the world children are exposed to experiences such as abuse, neglect, racial trauma, mass shootings, health pandemics, and natural disasters. 

With a lack of emotional literacy, emotional awareness, and coping skills children run the risk of not fully being able to communicate their thoughts, feelings, and needs.  This causes their traumatic experiences to have a greater impact on their internal system and causes parts to hold pain, shame, fear, and trauma.  

Imagine having the skills to address the impact of a child’s traumatic experiences, by increasing emotional awareness and decreasing reactive behaviours. 

With the combination of the non-phase treatment approach of Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Play Therapy, children will now have the opportunity to learn the various parts that make them who they are, express the feelings and beliefs of their parts, gain knowledge that others have parts as well - in a creative way.   

Carmen will teach us the therapeutic powers of play to facilitate communication, foster emotional wellness, enhance social relationships and increase personal strengths utilizing the steps of the Internal Family Systems.
