Training

Virginia offers training on a variety of topics for mental health professionals. She trains British Association of Play Therapists’ qualified play therapists in intensive filial therapy. This course leads to their beginning to practise as filial therapists. She also offers an introduction to both filial therapy and play therapy for interested UK professionals, and runs training programmes worldwide in play therapy and filial therapy, to suit each country’s professional needs.

In addition to play therapy and filial therapy, Virginia will be pleased to design training programmes on a variety of topics for professionals, based on the needs of their staff and the services they offer to children and families. She has offered training in understanding children’s attachment needs, how to communicate with children, working with children who have special needs (e g developmental delays, learning difficulties), helping parents develop effective parenting skills, using play in working as an educational psychologist, working with children in residential care and other related topics.
