Presentations and Trainings...

Play Therapy "Fun"damentals! Adults can play too!

One of my favorite things to do is present and train about play and expressive therapies- including Sandtray!  I present foundational play therapy trainings for TNAPT locally, but I can also tailor a program for agencies or specific locations and can go on the road as requested to bring play therapy training to you!

In 2019 I have so far presented in Atlanta in March on "Sandtray Basics for Ind, Famiy and Play Therapy" and will present this again in Somerset, KY in August.  I have also presented this year for Agape in Nashville, the annual TCSW Conference in Brentwood, as well as several trainings for TNAPT.   I have other trainings scheduled throughout Tennessee this year as well.  I am also excited to be presenting in England in June on "Play Therapy with Children of Divorce" as part of an International Play Therapy Study Group. 

My growing interest in Nature has developed into a NaturePlay Therapy training that has been just added to the presentations offered.  I am very enthusistic regarding my participation in a three day Play Therapy in Nature Training retreat in the Blue Ridge Mtns of N. Ga in November.  I have included the flyer for this training below, as well as a listing of recent presentations I have done. I can also adapt for a custom presentation subject and duration.
