We will follow a detailed case presentation to show how psychoanalytic play therapy can help children in foster care with histories of early loss, deprivation, abuse and other developmental strains and traumas. Play and other forms of reconstruction can offer ways to re-process the past emotional pain so as to gain new flexibility and integration. We will discuss developing plans to incorporate play therapy into work with system-involved youth clients to help them heal from trauma and develop healthy attachment.
