Be Centre Foundation is proud to present Lisa Dion, the creator of Synergetic Play Therapy, for a one-day professional training workshop titled ‘Working with Aggression and Intensity in Children’.

  • Are you struggling with children’s challenging behaviours ?
  • Interested in gaining insights on managing aggression and intensity in children?

Aggression naturally emerges in Play Therapy, and effectively transforming it into a therapeutic experience can be challenging. In this unique workshop, Lisa Dion examines these challenges through a Synergetic Play Therapy lens, providing new perspectives for all professionals working with children.

Join us to explore the neuroscience of helping your child clients navigate through their aggression and intense play, ultimately fostering healing and transformation. Lisa Dion, utilising the principles of Synergetic Play Therapy, will share practical strategies for handling intense and aggressive play.

If you’re a Play Therapist, Teacher, Psychologist, School Counsellor, Occupational Therapist, Speech Therapist, Social Worker, Case Worker, or any other professional currently working or intending to work with children, join us to learn practical strategies for handling intense and aggressive behaviour while fostering healing and transformation.
