Pregnancy is the launching point to a special journey that should be positively approached. It’s common that future mothers get discouraged from the physical demands of pregnancy and all the natural body changes that occur. It’s important to keep in mind that exercising during pregnancy not only has physical benefits, but also provides a peace of mind that can even propel a child’s success throughout its life.

This LIVE WEBINAR is a two hour play therapy workshop and an opportunity to learn interventions for self-regulation developed by Amy Reamer. Amy uses the concept of certain animals in conjunction with neuroscience as a part of play therapy with young children, teens, adults and even with couples and parents as a very useful tool. Amy published a book called “Toby the Tiger Tamer” so that other professionals and parents would have a tool to use with their clients and children. School counselors, occupational therapists, foster care social workers and others have found it helpful in explaining the brain to children. Based on her book, this workshop provides training on how to use these play therapy interventions that are are non-judgmental, non-shaming, and empowering. They provide a tool for effective communication. Trauma takes a toll on self confidence and an overactive Tiger continues that cycle.
