Christine LaCerva presents on clinical work with families + children

Christine La Cerva, Director of the Social Therapy Groupwill host a four-week online seminar for therapists, educators and parents entitled “Therapy Play with Children and Families.” Using interviews, unpublished case study materials and notes from supervisory sessions, Christine will introduce the multi-family social therapy group, which she has pioneered. For more info and to register, click HERE.

Children are natural performers, says LaCerva. I’m interested in helping young people and their parents create new performances as active creators of their families, classrooms and communities.

LaCerva says she plans to introduce a broad range of conversational topics, such as:  How do you build a developmental relationship with a five- or a fifteen- or fifty-year-old? How do you use improvisation, play and pretense in the therapy room? And how do we play with diagnoses, identities and family roles?

For over 25 years, LaCerva worked with Social Therapy founder Fred Newman to develop a performance-based, group therapy that helps young people and families challenge the limits of diagnostic labels (such as, Autism, Asperger’s, ADHD, etc.) and develop their lives.
