Description of Training:
This interactive workshop provides an overview of an innovative model for intervention in crisis and potentially traumatizing contexts, “Coping with the present while building for the future” (CPBF). Emphasis will be placed on the role of play, play therapy and expressive arts in a process-oriented approach targeting children, families and professionals.
What does it mean to deal with trauma in crisis contexts? When is the appropriate time to do so? What should be done before and after? After getting into the subject matter by sharing theoretical assumptions, images and videos from the field, the presenters will invite participants to reflect by engaging in creative activities and group discussion.
- Discuss the relevance of a process-oriented approach in crisis contexts.
- Describe the main phases of the “Coping with the present while building for the future” (CPBF) model.
