This training will focus on the importance of play for at-risk and foster youth and the function it serves in socioemotional development. Youth who have experienced complex trauma may at times demonstrate signs of impacted development through play–a central form of communication in childhood. Different theoretical orientations will also be explored to understand how play based approaches can be applied using a trauma-informed lens.
