Attachment Play Programme: Speaking the language of children - Using non-directive play to build healthy relationships with hard to reach young people

This interactive workshop helps make sense of the trauma young people have experienced and how this has contributed to the ways they need to live their lives. This journey of discovery will draw on the experiences of Play Kenya, when working with street children, abandoned and traumatized children in orphanages and institutions in Kenya, using a Playful Accepting Curious and Empathic (PACE) approach to engaging the hard to reach.
