Empathic listening to a child with play
The language of children is play. They express what’s alive in them through play. They let us experience how they feel while playing together. And play helps them to speak about their inner world. What if we use play to listen and connect with children?
In this workshop we combine the knowledge of play therapy, aware parenting and Nonviolent Communication to learn how to listen empathicaly to a child with play.
Join this workshop and discover the power of play.
