Creative Therapy Services support parents in a collaborative approach to learn new skills to respond effectively to their children's attachment needs. Trauma-informed parenting strategies support parents in understanding their children's often confusing behavior. Strengthening the parent-child relationship provides the child with internal security. A secure base will enable integrated trauma treatment to effectively work towards a decrease/resolution of behaviors and emotional reactivity related to traumatic material and dysregulated mind states.
Creative Therapy Services uses user-friendly graphics to help clients understand how the body and brain are affected by trauma and attachment wounds.
Strength-based interventions using metaphors for all ages foster adaptive functioning and build internal resources. Fighting our dragons, creating boundaries, and growing wings to rise above our challenges are playfully enacted in dragon and warrior hand-outs.
