Rinda has been training professionals in play therapy for twenty one years.  At play therapy workshops the focus is on hands-on training and experiential learning. By attending these workshops you will get the opportunity to take part in creative activities with different play media, such as clay, sand, puppets and drawings.  These exercises are accompanied by course manuals and practical demonstrations throughout.  You also get the opportunity to learn in a peaceful small group environment how to connect with children through play, how to conduct proper assessments and how to apply play therapy with different child populations.    ​
