Course Description:

In this workshop, early childhood practitioners will be introduced to the theoretical core, basics, and creative use of children’s books as therapy, regardless of parents’ literacy level or cultural background. Participants will learn how books strengthen parent-child bonds by increasing the caregiver’s self-awareness, awareness of his or her child, and the child’s meaning-making capacity. Participants will learn how to help caregivers make and use books about their personal history to deepen their understanding of and process the expected and unexpected rupture and repair in caregiver-child relationships. Lastly, participants will make a short, simple book.
