LEGO® play is universal, and LEGO® models and structures have become well-recognized not only as toy models but also as art forms. LEGO® unlocks the inner architect who craves creativity, flexibility, and transformation. LEGO® can be used as a therapeutic tool in play therapy and counseling to help strengthen relationships, provide sensory stimulation, improve social skills, and build resilience.
This workshop will explore the therapeutic power of LEGO® in play therapy and counseling for working with children, adolescents, and adults. Participants will gain an understanding of how to incorporate LEGO® into directive and non-directive play therapy interventions to engage clients, improve communication, problem-solving skills, conflict resolution skills, and increase self-esteem and well-being.
This experiential training will provide participants an opportunity to build. It is recommended that participants have available to them the following items: a LEGO® baseplate, 40-50 LEGO® bricks,* and most importantly, your imagination!
*Other building block systems may be used.
