Mindfulness in Family Systems in Play Therapy

Dr Jennifer Hayes, PhD, LMFT, RPT-S™


Mindfulness in Family Systems in Play Therapy $59

Children are embedded in a family system. From a Family Systems perspective, play therapy can be most effective when considering the systemic factors for a child and including the whole family system in the process of therapy. 

When the therapist brings mindfulness into the Family Systems Play Therapy, each family member is able to experience a greater sense of connectedness and ability to heal and grow. This two hour course teaches therapists how to guide families on a playful, mindfulness-based journey.

Upon completion of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Participants will learn the benefits of mindfulness within the family system context.
  • Participants will learn how to assess 2 main categories of family dynamics and family play therapy readiness.
  • Participants will learn how to use Mindfulness in Self of the Therapist to create systemic change.
  • Participants will learn how to use play therapy interventions to create systemic change.
