The Art and Science of Holistic Expressive Play Therapy, An Integrative Approach to Healing Trauma by Dr. Marie-Jose Dhaese and Dr. Richard Gaskill

In this four part video series, Dr. Gaskill and I combine our expertise to explore and weave together current neurobiological research and the theory and application of Holistic Expressive Play Therapy, an integrative approach with a long and successful history of treating trauma in children. Its wide variety of attachment-based and body-centered expressive methods utilizing sensory experience, movement activities, and creative expression lend themselves well to the rapidly evolving knowledge regarding the effects of complex trauma.
