Northwest, Indiana Play Therapy Network Meeting

On Saturday, August 12, 2017 at 10:00 am, the first Northwest, Indiana Play Therapy Network group met in Plymouth, IN.  We had nine play therapists in attendance.  We started off by enjoying a yummy brunch and getting to know each other using a fun ice breaker using M and M’s.  Then we all brought ideas for our favorite therapeutic game.  The group enjoyed door prizes to benefit our play rooms.  If you would like to join us, our next meeting will be held on Saturday, November 4, 2017 from 10-12:00 pm at 505 Colonial Court, Plymouth, IN.  Please call Janel Quillin at (574) 207-3147 for more information.  We will be introducing ourselves using our favorite sand tray item.  More food and door prizes will be available.  If you are not from Northwest, IN you are still welcome to join us!
