Synergetic Play Therapy® (2008) is a researched-informed model of play therapy blending the therapeutic power of play with nervous system regulation, interpersonal neurobiology, physics, attachment, mindfulness, & therapist authenticity. It’s primary play therapy influences are Child-Centered, Experiential, & Gestalt theories.
Although Synergetic Play Therapy® is a model of play therapy, it’s also a way of being in relationship with self and others. It’s an all-encompassing paradigm that can be applied to any facet of life, at any stage of life. As an SPT therapist, my ability to engage in mindfulness & model regulation of my own nervous system is the foundation for how your child can learn how to manage his/her/their own nervous system. As the therapist in relationship with your child, I will lead the way, just like a caregiver has to lead the way for an infant.
