Thank you for a most enjoyable and productive day. I was looking for some fresh ideas and tools to work with certain siblings and families where I feel stuck. I very much appreciate that you honor the theoretical framework of play therapy and made clear that you are offering us tools to help us with clinical goals. I also appreciated how we differentiated between competitive vs. collaborative play and how we might use different modalities depending upon our therapeutic goals. The experiential parts were well done and impactful. It is not often that one can immediately apply what they have learned at a workshop. Jenn provided that today. The workshop felt playful and light as well as thoughtful and steeped in theory.
