PILINA in the Playroom
June 8- June 12, 2020 | Kailua- Kona, Hawaii

Join us for a 5-Day Retreat at the Courtyard King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel in 
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. 

Why WE THINK YOU Should Come


Being a play therapist is hard work and we need each other.  This retreat is an experience that I believe we all deserve and need.  It is about learning in community in a way that allows us to go deeper, make new friends, receive some much needed care and discover that we are not alone on the journey.  And one of the best parts is that families are welcome, because they are important too. The bottom line is that I love play therapists and I am beyond honored to be a part of this experience.” 

Lisa Dion 
Instructor, LPC, RPT-S


Our goal is to create an experience where you deepen your understanding of how integral the brain, heart, and soul of a person are and how this can either hinder or strengthen the ability to form a secure attachment to others.  We hope throughout this retreat you will develop personal connections with the presenters and the other participants in a way that deepens your learning. At the end of the retreat, you will leave feeling confident and competent in your play therapy practice, as well as feeling more connected to your purpose as a person and as a clinician.

Clair Mellenthin 
 Instructor, LCSW, RPT-S


My vision for this conference is for you to start to do the things you always thought were out of reach for you.  This event combines all of my passions:  creating a vision of your best self, having unforgettable experiences with your loved ones, and getting play therapy training that will serve you throughout your entire career.
