Level One Theraplay & Marschak Interaction Model (MIM)

This course is co-sponsored with the Theraplay Institute 

Children who have lived in unsafe environments, with inconsistent/ impaired caregivers or who have endured multiple losses may not be able to overcome these traumatic experiences without some type of intervention. Theraplay is a psychotherapy that focuses on the parent-child relationship as a vehicle to heal problems of trust, hyperarousal and connection in both children and parents.

Special features of this training:

  • Using video, participants will see a demonstration of treatment of a real client family including the MIM assessment, feedback to the parents and several Theraplay sessions
  • The training is interactive, intense and practical—participants will leave with the knowledge and skills to begin using Theraplay in their work
  • It features video of Theraplay treatment with many different clients in addition to the demonstration family
