Description

In this recording, the science of the experience of self, identity and belonging will be explored. This session will examine the extremes of the independent and interdependent self-constructions and how our modern society pushes for the view of a solo-self to the detriment of social justice and environmental protection.

Play therapy offers a unique opportunity to expand the lens of identity to view a broader belonging and integrated self as Me plus We as an intraconnected MWe.
