Center for Studies of the Person Master Series
December 11th & 12th, 2021
9AM – 12PM PDT.
This workshop provides an overview of how Barbara and Heather use the person centered approach in working with children. They will also describe the Kids’ Workshop™ that they developed. The Kids’ Workshop builds up on the principles of humanistic psychology, including Carl Rogers, Virginia Satir, and Virginia Axline.
This 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.
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.
The workshop will give you ways to help a child trust you. It will give you tools to be able to use with that child to help them to express themselves and anything that is bothering them and ways to work that out. All of this can be done in a way that the child enjoys and feels secure.
A Certificate of attendance will be given upon completion of this workshop.
