Hello everyone! Thank you to all those who joined the Basic Play Therapy Workshop last May 17-19, 2016!
Here are some pictures and words to capture the three day event c/o Philplay president Dr.Wash Garcia:
The time. The space. “To be.”
Day 1 of the recent Basic Play Therapy Workshop 1 (BPT1) held last May 17-19.
The participants were busy at play, doing what they felt like doing, reaching back to their childhood experiences and opening doors to creativity.
And they were just getting started!
Listening. And the importance of respect and pacing.
Day 2 of BPT1.
Grounding the play experience on concepts, theories and principles of child psychology, examining the nuances of therapist-client relationship, and exploring the dynamics of the self. Telling our own stories. Sharing insights gained from interacting with children in specific work settings. Seeing thru the lens of our own culture.
Mental furniture. And pieces of the soul.
Day 3 of BPT1.
Some of the outputs of the participants from going thru selected modes of expressive therapy.
“Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable” (Cesar Cruz)

Do join us for this 3-day workshop and let’s talk about respect for children. Let’s enter their world and talk about how children play and learn. Let’s also look into ourselves. Let’s talk about how we can imbibe children’s warmth, honesty and enthusiasm. Let’s talk about how we can help our children become more resilient in these trying times. Let’s talk about how we can be agents of change for children.
We pray you’ll find the time to join us in this advocacy.
Children as truth-sayers has always been a powerful theme in literature, Psychology and jurisprudence.
Join us in this 3-day workshop and discover children’s capacity for insight and the wisdom that they
possess beyond their years. Find out how you can nurture their potentials, and help them grow into
caring and competent individuals.
We hope you will find the time to join us in this noteworthy activity.
