Integrating Extremes shows therapists how to facilitate aggression and death play in a way that truly allows healing to occur, for both the therapist and the child, at the deepest level possible.

Participants will:

  1. Develop an understanding of aggression and death play that is based on brain function and neuroscience.
  2. Explore the four threats to the brain that activate a fight/flight/freeze/fall asleep response and why this is so important to know when working with children.
  3. Learn practical ways to authentically work with the intensity of aggression and death play, without causing compassion fatigue or burnout.
  4. Gain an understanding of how to set boundaries without shaming or shutting the child down.
  5. Learn ways to regulate yourself in the midst of intense play so as to model to the child client how to do the same, thereby enhancing the child’s capacity for self-regulation.
