We recently concluded our 3rd run Using LEGO® Play Therapy workshop. It was a fun-filled 2-day (12 hours) certificate programme designed to introduce professionals to the use of the beloved Lego in various work setting.
Participants in this round are school counsellors coming together to learn about the use of LEGO in the school setting. They enjoyed many reflective exercises and experiential activities that introduced many of them to the power of play and LEGO. Working in small groups, participants also had numerous opportunities to put practice new learnings and techniques followed by group discussion and consultation.
The course is accredited with West Coast Institute and the Association for Play Therapy (US); the 12 training hours was counted towards accreditation with both organizations.
Please contact us for the next workshop date in 2018 and 2019.
From our participants
“I thoroughly enjoyed the training as it provided me with another avenue to delve into the world of my clients through the use of Lego. Practicing with Lego also triggered some fond memories of my childhood and it literally brought out the kid in me. I would definitely recommend this workshop to practitioners, looking for alternative ways to reach out to their clients”.
Anuradha , Senior Social Worker, Children's Aid Society
"I found the use of LEGO in Play Therapy context a powerful tool. Before attending the workshop, I have already seen my student clients frequent the LEGO toys in the therapy room. The challenge is of me understanding their process and helping them make sense of the experiences they are processing and conquering. The workshop is grounded in evidence-based play therapy theories, alongside the trainer's years of clinical experience working with children. The experiential learning part of the workshop gave participants the first hand personal experience that is valuable for understanding the process, not just through theories but through experiencing. LEGO which taps on one's imagination has opened up for me a world of possibilities in play therapy in working with children, and the ability to understand and use this tool is just exuberating for me. I encourage all professionals who does therapy work with children to experience and learn from the workshop."
