The Healing Power of Play (for Parents of Children aged 0-11)

Roe Valley Parent Workshops 2024

Play doesn’t always come naturally to everyone.

The Healing Powers of Play for Parents/Carers is a two day workshop where you will get to explore and gain a greater understanding and awareness on how Play can help your child process their struggles, stressors & challenging behaviours.

The aim is to use the medium of play to help enhance the parent/child relationship and connection.

Throughout the sessions Parents/carers will be invited to experience the process of play, as Siobhan believes that it is only in the experiencing of play, that we truly understand the Healing Powers of Play.

It’s not JUST PLAY, within the process of play children get to explore their inner and outer world, express their emotions and heal unresolved stressors and trauma that is held within the body and mind. No amount of verbal language can talk the child out of these stored up stressors or trauma responses. A deeper process is required for long term effects. Play is the child’s language.’

Siobhan Wilson-McGlinchey

Throughout the sessions, we will explore:

· The connections between Play and basic Neuroscience concepts;

· The Power of Presence, Attunment and connection to Play;

· The importance of Co-Regulation and Regulation in Play;

· The Process of Play;

· Play Themes;

· The Parents/Carers own experience and history of Play;

· Therapeutic use of self within the parent/child relationship.


Dates: Tuesday 17th and 24th September 2024

Time: 10am – 1pm 

Location: Roe Valley Therapy Centre, 101a Irish Green St, Limavady, BT49 9AA
