Grief in Play Therapy: Learning to Play in the Midst of Loss – Live Web-Based Workshop
There are no happy endings. Endings are the saddest part, so just give me a happy middle and a very happy start” -Shel Silverstein
Grief is sweeping the world at a rapid rate! Its signs are evident through the screens of our therapy sessions. It does not discriminate against age, race, gender or religion. At this time it can feel as if we are faced with a red light in life. Join us to learn how to play in the midst of the loss as well as utilize play to process grief. There is a green light on the other side of this red light! #thisisnottheend
