Trauma-focused Integrated Play Therapy (TF-IPT)

A 12-Session Play-Based Treatment Curriculum

Dates: 29th – 31st Oct 2021

Time: 8am to 4pm

ALL TRAINING VIA ZOOM UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Phone: 031 201 0307 (Durban Office)

COST :

3 DAYS – R4000

BASIC PRINCIPLES OF TF-IPT

Trauma focused Integrated Play Therapy (TF-IPT) is a model Well- suited to young children ages 5 to 17. The material is designed to elicit more full engagement in treatment and to remain sensitive to children’s natural hesitation and loyalty conflicts and confusions when discussing interpersonal traumas that involve family members or other trusted Individuals (adults or older children).

Format of the Three-Phase Model

Phase 1:

Establishment of Safety

Five sessions

Phase 2:

Processing Traumatic Material

Five sessions

Phase 3:

Social Reconnection

Two Sessions (with time extension)

Structure and Repetition

Working with young children and adolescents has special challenges and rewards. It is critical to ensure that clinical approaches are culturally and developmentally-appropriate, engaging, time-sensitive, and repetitive. In addition, tasks that engage the whole child and Include intellectual, emotional, physical, and expressive activities have greater potential to elicit more ample client participation. The following activities greatly enhance the potential for successful treatment:

  • Structured format and time-limited “lessons”;
  • Parallel psycho-education to children and their parents;
  • Repetition and review for children;
  • Practice in and out of clinical setting;
  • Structured session transition using Affective Scaling and Mindfulness Breathing;
  • Engagement of parents/caretakers with at-home reviews.

THE RESEARCH MODEL

Research Design

This curriculum was developed as part of a multi-site study (Fairfax, VA and Phoenix, AZ Child help outpatient treatment centres) comparing the following treatments using Randomized Controlled Trial design:

A. Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT)

B. Trauma Focused Integrated Play Therapy (TF-IPT)

Assessment   Measures

Assessments administered at intake and discharge (repeated measures) using the following scales:

A. Child self-report:

  • Trauma Symptom Checklist for Children, ages 8-16 (TSCC, Briere)
  • Emotional Expression Scale for Children, ages 6-18 (ESSC, Penza-Clyve & Zeman)
  • Child Post-Traumatic Cognitions Inventory, ages 6-18 (CPTCI, Meiser-Stedman, et. al.)

B. Parent report of child’s behaviour:

  • Child Behaviour Checklist, ages 5-18 (CBCL, Achenbach)

Tuly Flint

Ego states and other ways of seeing the Multiplicity of the self

How many are we?

No,

The question is not how many people are there in our group or our Family. That’s an easy question. The Question is HOW MANY ARE WE within one person.

If this question were to be presented to the average person on the street, he/she would consider it simple- there is only one entity to one body!

But, therapists know otherwise

Who among us has not come across a patient who is acting illogically, inefficiently, inconsistently and (many times) dangerously without control or meaning? And, when he talks about it, he does not know why he acted as he did. Patient’s knowledge of himself in those moments is many times misty and foggy.

Sometimes the patient will tell us – it really was not me. It is different from everything I believe about myself and of the things I know I want to do.

And sometimes, other people will testify that he was different. As if someone else was there.

In extreme cases, we will talk about DID or as we used to call it “Multiple Personality” (a frightening concept).  However, before we go to these rare and challenging the cases, let us ask ourselves:

Are they sick? Is it a pathology?

Isn’t this patient the same as we are sometimes?

Do we ourselves know all our parts? Do we know why we did just what we did? Are we accounted for everything that took place about us?

The answer is probably no!

Watkin, in their classic book “Ego states” says it very clear:

Personality is Multiplicity – within every person, there is more than one “Being”.

Moreover, this is OK; this is how it should be!

In this workshop, we will learn about the multiplicity concept from various points of view and practice how we can utilize this essential and creative understanding of human personality for the benefit of our clients and their internal and external family system.

 Ego-States Parts-work Workshop EMDR and Non-EMDR Therapists

Three-day workshop

Day 1           Basic understanding of ego situations – for both EMDR and Non-EMDR therapists

Days 2 + 3 Ego states for EMDR therapists Individual, couples and group intervention

Many times we hear a patient says: “I don’t know how it happened; I suddenly found myself in ….“.  Or, for example, “It feels like a part of me has taken over me and done me at will” and even “I have some voices, and if I don’t They are confusing me…”

This phenomenon is evident with many patients, trauma victims and those diagnosed with a post-traumatic response as well as among addicts.  It is mostly present in those with developmental trauma.

Throughout the history of psychology and psychology, there have been several reactions to the phenomenon. Responses ranged from suspicion of lying and deception to false and accurate diagnose of dissociative personality disorder on its various names.

However, in recent years, new findings, insights and concepts had broadened our range of understanding. Our ability to work with the various parts of the mind has become more developed and efficient. What used to be frightening, confusing, and even repulsive can be a useful and meaningful tool to help our client to live a full life.

Leading theories include Watkin’s Ego-States, Schwartz’s internal family system, as well as the Structural dissociation of Van der Hart and Solomon.  Various theories and approaches opened the door to effective treatment and intervention methods that will be learned in this workshop

Brain spotting with Marie Jose Boons

Brainspotting™ Phase 1 & Phase 2
 Brainspotting-logoPNG
Brainspotting (BPS) is a powerful, brain-based, treatment modality that bridges the gap between mind and body. Focusing on identifying the physical correlates of a client’s issues, it then provides an anchor that grounds the patient while simultaneously stimulating an incredible associative process that leads to the  processing and release of the core neurophysiological sources of emotional/body pain, trauma, dissociation, performance anxiety and an array of other challenging symptoms.

This is a 3 Day Phase 1  BSP which is an open, integrative model which includes the Dual Attunement Frame, Inside Window BSP, Outside Window BSP, and Gazespotting

Join us for Phase 1 & 2 facilitated by Marie Jose Boons of the Netherlands. From 2011 she studied with David Grand, founder of Brainspotting and assists him in international training and give themselves trainings Brainspotting in various countries. It introduces Brainspotting in the Netherlands and Belgium and now works internationally as brain spotting supervisor and practitioner. In her coaching emphasis on performance and quality of life; Brainspotting offers its ability to bring the floor to it.

Her interest in Brainspotting was aroused when it was found that clients sometimes continue to struggle with the same issues, which hinder them in everyday life and work. Brainspotting offers the opportunity to be reached in the brains those areas mainly, where one normally has no influence on the cognition. That makes Brainspotting an extremely effective method to solve stubborn blockages and traumas in a lifetime and process.

Who may attend:
Beginners and advanced students in Sandplay Therapy (Psychologists, Jungian Analysts, Social Workers, Psychiatrists, counselors and people in the field of Health with a masters degree and a basic knowledge of counseling and Psychotherapy).

We hope you will join us to set the standard for practicing Sandplay Therapy in South Africa, as described by ISST.

Participants have the opportunity to learn from a special group of trainers not usually accessible in South Africa.

Sandplay Therapy (founder Dora Kalff) and the training of participants to become, if they wish, certified Sandplay Therapist in South Africa, will be guided by the President and board members of ISST until we fulfill the ethical requirements in South Africa to form ethically the South African Association for Sandplay Therapists. This is therefore the FIRST FORMAL TRAINING towards becoming a Certified Sandplay Therapist in South Africa by ISST.

The confusion between the use of the words Sandtray therapy and Sandplay Therapy (Founder Dora Kalff) continues despite several attempts to clarify the differences.

Since the Sandplay method developed by Dora Kalff has recognizable parameters, there is value in keeping it as a separate recognizable type of Psychotherapy.

Perhaps the time has come to keep the term Sandtray as a generic term and reserve the term Sandplay for the specified method of Psychotherapy (Jungian) in using sandtrays (Kay Bradway, Journal of Sandplay Therapy, 2006)

Participants, who already participated in Sandplay in Africa 2009 Basslake, South Africa by Dr Martin Kalff, can use those 33 CEU/CPD points towards ISST registration to become Certified Sandplay Therapists and it can become part of the two year intensive for 2011 – 2012 (120 points towards ISST).

Outline of Literature: 

Sandplay practicalities and practice:

Symbols: An exploration of the concept, characteristics and experience of symbols. Differentiating, signs, symbols and archetypes. The image and power of symbols as they present in the sand.

Sandplay cases and case material: Exposure to case material provides a rich and essential platform for familiarization with, and apprehension of, paths and patterns of psychic energy as it  constellates in the tray: and of the effect this constellation has on the player.
Whole cases, part cases, or single sessions will be used to study and explore their intrinsic dynamic and significance, and to highlight particular issues and concepts.

Image and Healing: An essential component of Sandplay is working with images. This topic explores what makes the activity of image making valuable in practice and includes an exploration of it’s context in human culture beyond the sand tray.

Jungian perspectives: Key themes from Jungian psychology and their use as a framework for Sandplay work.

Cultural perspectives: Introduction to the symbolic language of myths and fairy tales, working with specific tales and their use in understanding psychological process. Examples of Myth in Sandplay. film, artwork and literature and how they inform our understanding, practice and experience.

Child development in relation to Sandplay: Core aspects of the development of the personality and a sense of self. The impact of trauma and the potential use of Sandplay and pre-sandplay. The interplay of inner- and outer- worlds in the child psychological development.

Psychopathology: The purpose of this series is not to make diagnosticians of trainees. It aims to develop trainee’s skills in thinking about, and being alert to the possibility of formal illness, its varied presentation and meaning, and how to set up and use an appropriate support network in this regard.

Historical perspectives: Differentiating Jung as a historical figure from the many fictions about him and placing him and his work in the context of the emergence of modern psychology and psychotherapy. Background, history and contexts of Sandplay. (BISS)

ADHD / Oppositional Defiant Children

A 2 Day Workshop on Short Term Therapy Techniques with Oppositional and Defiant & ADHD Children & Adolescents, plus Techniques & Strategies to Help the Angry Child – Including The Marschak Interaction Method

Dates:

ADHD Workshop Johannesburg:

  • 27th – 28th November 2021
  • Time: 8am to 4Pm

Venue:

Johannesburg:131 Riverside Road, Sandton
031 201 0307 ( Durban Office )

Cost:

R 3,000.00

Deposit:

  • A 30% non-refundable and non-transferable deposit is required in order to register for the workshop.  If the workshop is cancelled by the trainer due to insufficient numbers the deposit will be refunded.

About the workshop:

This workshop is designed to help the clinician distinguish the particular needs of the Oppositional and Defiant child from other disorders including childhood depression which can present many similar symptoms and behaviours. The workshop focuses on techniques to use with children, parents, and in consulting with teachers including:

  • Components of ADHD
  • Common Developmental Features
  • Prognosis
  • Assessment
  • Medication
  • Goals of Treatment
  • Techniques
  • Limit Setting
  • Communication
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Ego Boosting.

This practical workshop will be aimed at helping the therapist or counselor engage the reluctant adolescent in a working alliance without being pedantic or condescending.

Handling a child’s anger can be one of the most distressing, confusing and draining experiences tor teachers and parents alike.

Parents and teachers frequently turn to the counselor. Or other mental health professional for help in coping with and understanding angry children, but such professionals are rarely trained in specific techniques to help these difficult children and the people who care for them.

From a developmental point of view, ineffective responses to a child’s anger can lead to a poor self-image, a lack of social experiences, and the missing of many important childhood milestones. From a behavioural point of view, angry children are more likely to engage in anti-social and delinquent activities and aggressive acts.

Another disturbing aspect of a child’s uncontrolled anger is the angry feelings which may be stirred up in adults. There is a high correlation between angry children and abuse and violence in the home, suggesting that any treatment must take both intrapsychic and systemic factors into consideration.

This workshop will not only help mental health professionals use techniques and interventions more effectively, but will also re-energize them in their work with these difficult children.

What You Will Learn:

  • How to differentiate the causes of a child’s anger
  • How to choose techniques according to the specific diagnostic categories, including: Conduct Disorders, ADHD, and Oppositional Defiance Disorders.
  • How to treat children “without a conscience”
  • How to effectively involve parents and caretakers in treatment
  • How to consult with teachers for maximum therapeutic effect
  • How to run an “anger management” group
  • How to integrate play therapy, behavioural, cognitive, and systems interventions.
  • Identifying and using community resources –Activity and sports techniques
  • Ways to repair missed developmental tasks
  • Using interpretations successfully
  • 3 stages of play therapy with angry children
  • Family techniques that really work
  • Homework assignments for parents

Marschak Interaction Method:

The Marschak Interaction Method (MIM) is a structured technique for observing and assessing the relationship between two individuals. It consists of a series of simple tasks designed to elicit a range of behaviours in four dimensions.

The MIM evaluates the parent’s capacity to set limits and to provide an appropriately ordered environment (Structure), to engage the child in interaction while being attuned to the child’s state and reactions (Engagement), to meet the child’s efforts to achieve at a developmentally appropriate level (Challenge), At the same time it allows assessment of the child’s ability to respond to the parent’s effort.

In addition to allowing a close look at problem areas in the relationship, the MIM provides a unique opportunity for observing the strengths of both adult and child and of their relationship. It is, therefore, a valuable tool in planning for treatment and in determining how to help families, strengthen their relationships. The description of the relationship that results from this observation is a valuable aid in determining the appropriateness of custody arrangements, reunification, foster placement, and/or adoption.

We hope you will join us to set the standard for practicing Sandplay Therapy in South  Africa, as described by ISST.

Participants have the opportunity to learn from a special group of trainers not usually accessible in South Africa.

Sandplay Therapy (founder Dora Kalff) and the training of participants to become, if they wish, certified Sandplay Therapist in South Africa, will be guided by the President and board members of ISST until we fulfill the ethical requirements in South Africa to form ethically the South African Association for Sandplay Therapists. This is therefore one of the FIRST FORMAL TRAINING towards becoming a Certified Sandplay Therapist in South Africa by ISST.

The confusion between the use of the words Sandtray therapy and Sandplay Therapy (Founder Dora Kalff) continues despite several attempts to clarify the differences.

Since the Sandplay method developed by Dora Kalff has recognizable parameters, there is value in keeping it as a separate recognizable type of Psychotherapy.

Perhaps the time has come to keep the term Sandtray as a generic term and reserve the term Sandplay for the specified method of Psychotherapy (Jungian) in using sandtrays (Kay Bradway, Journal of Sandplay Therapy, 2006)

Outline of Literature: 

Sandplay practicalities and practice:

Symbols: An exploration of the concept, characteristics and experience of symbols. Differentiating, signs, symbols and archetypes. The image and power of symbols as they present in the sand.

Sandplay cases and case material: Exposure to case material provides a rich and essential platform for familiarization with, and apprehension of, paths and patterns of psychic energy as it  constellates in the tray: and of the effect this constellation has on the player.
Whole cases, part cases, or single sessions will be used to study and explore their intrinsic dynamic and significance, and to highlight particular issues and concepts.

Image and Healing: An essential component of Sandplay is working with images. This topic explores what makes the activity of image making valuable in practice and includes an exploration of it’s context in human culture beyond the sand tray.

Jungian perspectives: Key themes from Jungian psychology and their use as a framework for Sandplay work.

Cultural perspectives: Introduction to the symbolic language of myths and fairy tales, working with specific tales and their use in understanding psychological process. Examples of Myth in Sandplay. film, artwork and literature and how they inform our understanding, practice and experience.

Child development in relation to Sandplay: Core aspects of the development of the personality and a sense of self. The impact of trauma and the potential use of Sandplay and pre-sandplay. The interplay of inner- and outer- worlds in the child psychological development.

Psychopathology: The purpose of this series is not to make diagnosticians of trainees. It aims to develop trainee’s skills in thinking about, and being alert to the possibility of formal illness, its varied presentation and meaning, and how to set up and use an appropriate support network in this regard.

Historical perspectives: Differentiating Jung as a historical figure from the many fictions about him and placing him and his work in the context of the emergence of modern psychology and psychotherapy. Background, history and contexts of Sandplay. (BISS)
