The first six years of life are the most influential period of neuronal growth and the most vulnerable to maltreatment. Advancements in neuroscience provide theoretical and conceptual support for principles and practices of Adlerian play therapy (AdPT) for young children. In this online workshop, the presenter will (a) examine Adlerian play therapy through a neuroscientific lens, specifically the Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) framework pioneered by Dan Siegel (2012), outline specific interventions from AdPT complimentary to neuroscience research that supports the positive growth of children, and (c) guide participants in connecting these philosophies (AdPT and IPNB) through case examples, activities, and discussion.
