On Monday December 7 at 11:00 am Dora Henderson, LMHC, RPT-S will present a one hour class called EMDR based Art Activities as part of the Child and Family Play Therapy Mini Master Class Series. 

When children have traumatic experiences, the brain has a difficult time properly processing the memories of the traumatic event. EMDR helps the brain organize and process the trauma experience so that children can experience growth and healing.

Dora Henderson will be teaching us some playful art activities that are connected to the work of EMDR to help children in this one hour mini master class on December 7. Her creativity, delightful nature and true passion for play therapy will no doubt be inspiring in this one hour class.
