Treating children with play therapy will be taught

The training, named "Working with Children with ADHD", starts in Bursa on October 23. The training to be given by Psychotherapist and Psychological Consultant Elif Macit, will be carried out by Bursa Provincial Directorate of National Education and Istanbul Gelisim University.

Psychotherapist and Psychological Consultant Elif Macit, who stated that Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) may start in pre-school children and continue in adulthood, said, “The main feature of ADHD is the shortening of the permanent and continuous attention span, and it manifests in behaviours or cognition depending on the lack of control towards prevention. It can be defined as a state of aggression and restlessness.”

“GAME IS A PRACTICE PROCESS FOR CHILDREN”

Emphasizing that play therapy is an important approach in the treatment of children diagnosed with ADHD, Macit said, “Play is children's learning through experimentation about the subjects that no one else can teach children. Play is a process of adaptation and practice for children. In general, play is an important area where children can express themselves, use their talents, creativity and realize their potential, develop their language, cognitive, social, affective and motor skills and increase their awareness. It is also the period of time when they spend a lot of power and spend their energy. As a result, children can calm down and realize their potential.”

“REDUCES HYPERACTIVITY”

Mentioning that play therapy is an ideal method for children diagnosed with ADHD to socialize and express their emotions, Macit said, "Children spend their energy in play therapy, and as a result, it helps to reduce impulsivity and hyperactivity."

The training will take place face to face.
