Service Description

Experiential Approaches for Anger Expression in Children and Adolescents Think back to your childhood. Did you feel frustrated? As a teen, was it ok just feel upset? Did you ever feel pressure to hold that in? This workshop jumps into the nuance of child anger and how it can be expressed... in healthy ways. We will start this workshop exploring literature and theory on anger expression, keenly focusing on conditioning to repress angry feelings. We will discuss what current literature suggests about the need for anger expression. Next, we will talk through a gestalt play therapy approach to conceptualize anger expression in children and adolescents. This will involve learning about the gestalt contact cycles and contact disturbances. Three phases of facilitating anger exploration will be covered. To finish, we will practice a number of activities which offer children or adolescents space to build awareness and choice on emotional expression. We will utilize activities that allow you to practice skills to express anger, while having space to reflect on this approach. All of the activities we practice and review will fit within a gestalt play therapy approach. Prepare for talking, molding, and creating, as we make connections between the expression of negative emotions and child wellbeing. Objectives: Participants will be able to: Discuss recent research literature and developmental theory on anger expression. Explain the approach of Gestalt Play Therapy for anger expression in children and adolescents. Describe and plan two strategies supported by research and Gestalt Play Therapy theory for healthy expression of anger. Presenter: Theodore Stripling CE: 6 contact hours (Live Webinar) 9am-4:30pm (CST)
