Youth Haven Chosen to Host Play Therapy Workshops

Youth Haven will host two different play therapy workshops which will be taught by trainers Ann Beckley-Forest, LCSWR, RPT-S and Annie Monaco, LCSWR. The first workshop for beginner to intermediate audiences will focus on the Foundations of the Play Therapy Relationship and the second intermediate to advanced workshops focuses on Play Therapy Strategies for Trauma, Attachment and Dissociation.

These trainings are recommended for social workers, psychologists, family therapists, art therapists, psychiatrists, school counselors, child life specialists, mental health counselors and graduate students. “We are very excited to have the opportunity to help bring quality training to Southwest Florida. Through these workshops, we hope to help improve and augment the clinical skill set of therapists treating children, specifically those who have experienced trauma, in our community,” states Youth Haven Clinical Supervisor, Libby Badillo, LCSW, RPT.
