On December 11 Jamie Lynn Langley, LCSW, RPT-S will be presenting a one hour class called Bringing Nature Play into Telehealth as part of the Child and Family Therapy Mini Master Class Series.
Jamie’s passion for Nature and Play Therapy come together in all of her work promoting and training on the topic of Nature Play Therapy. In this one hour class Jamie will be bringing some practical, play based ways you can incorporate Nature into your play therapy sessions over telehealth.
Jamie Lynn Langley, LCSW, RPT-S is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor. She has a private practice in Smyrna, TN, outside of Nashville, where she sees children and adolescents from the ages of 3 – 19 and their families. Jamie truly loves her work providing supervision of play therapists towards earning the RPT credential and also teaches adjunct for Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) and Lipscomb University. Prior to private practice Jamie worked with a community mental health center for over 27 years, primarily providing child, family and play therapy. As the president and one of the original co-founders of the Tennessee Association for Play Therapy, she has been dedicated to making play therapy training more available and affordable at the regional and state level since 1992.
Drawing upon her more than thirty years of clinical and supervisory experience, Jamie often presents regionally, nationally and internationally (both in-person and over on-line forums) on play therapy. These presentations include expressive arts, sand and nature as integral parts of play therapy. Becoming increasingly concerned over the growing lack of nature experiences for children, Jamie has been incorporating nature play in her play therapy more over the past several years.
Jamie has also been an advocate for combining childhood and nature experiences for children and their families outside of therapy. She is involved as a charter member with the Children and Nature Network which was started by Louv in 2006. She serves on the Advisory Board representing children and mental health for the Healthy Parks Healthy Person program through the Tennessee State Parks and is also part of the Park Rx program.
Jamie is one of the presenters in the online Nature Play Therapy Training Series
One resource for ways to engage with Nature at home for families is this book.
