About Kids’ Workshop
The Kids’ Workshop™ presented by Barbara and Heather Williams will explore the person centered approach and play therapy. With their own developed philosophy, they build upon the principles of humanistic psychology developed by Carl Rogers, Virginia Satir, and Virginia Axline. Their work focuses on the deep respect for a child and the child’s wisdom.
This workshop is particularly helpful in this moment in time. It is a wonderful resource for people working with children in areas such as, therapy, teaching, counseling, day care or anyone in the medical or mental health profession. The workshop will demonstrate how to work with children in different cultures around the world.
“Much of our work focuses on the importance and beauty of diversity and the powerful connection between children and nature.“
We believe that children have the qualities of empathy, trust, acceptance and congruency from the time that they are born. With nurturing and support they can bring these qualities out and express and keep them as they grow. When children can express these qualities they have high self-confidence and are resilient. Our work focuses on the deep respect for a child and the child’s wisdom.
A Certificate of attendance will be given upon completion of this workshop.
