Do you and your child struggle to connect at times? Does your child’s behavior seem more difficult to manage than most?
Secure attachment is essential for healthy child development, but a foster or adopted child’s past may be affecting their behaviors, and consequently having an impact on your connection with your child.
Adoption therapist Mandy Jones, LCSW, JD will lead this interactive workshop and teach basic Theraplay® activites to connect and engage with your children, as well as help them to regulate behaviors.

The Theraplay InstituteDuring this day-long workshop, you will be better prepared to:
– help your child feel comfortable accepting guidance and leadership- communicate without resorting to rewards and threats
– enhance your child’s self-esteem and sense of well-being
​- bring joy, laughter, and fun back into the family
– foster a lasting connection between you and your child

Learn how to better understand your child while managing challenges that are unique to your own foster or adoptive family.
