This 2 day course will help those working with groups of young people and children in the outdoors or at Forest School to understand why some children present difficult behaviours and are unable to participate in the group activities. We explore strategies and methods through Forest Play and while this is not a therapy intervention the methods will incorporate a therapeutic approach. The play skills included will include sand play, music, fire and puppet play and story making.

Trainers will be Marina Robb who has worked for many years in nature connection and with groups that have specific needs and Kate Macairt has worked as a play therapist for 10 years and teaching on the post graduate diploma course for 7 will be facilitating the course.
