The Play of Life is a flexible, online education accreditation program for applications with individuals, couples, families and groups/teams. Developed by the creator of the model, Dr Carlos A Raimundo, this is the only accreditation program of the Play of Life model.
The Play of Life model is a combination of Psychodrama, Neuroscience, CBT, Philosophy, Logotherapy, Sociology and Spirituality applied through practical techniques using the Play of Life Digital App or Playmobil figures and props.
Through its 3-dimensional, para-verbal application, the Play of Life helps us to bridge the intention and behaviour gap to better help clients with:
- Language and cultural differences,
- Lack of insight,
- Anxiety and stress,
- Autism and other psychological or psychiatric disorders.
The process of Accreditation
The Play of Life® Accreditation Program has been adapted from a 300-hour post-graduate course into a program divided into a Starting Point, two-day workshop, and 3 levels (a total of 6 modules) of flexible distance education accreditation. These modules provide participants with a solid theoretical and scientific foundation (theory) as well as practical tools and immediately applicable techniques (6 modules totalling in over 15 techniques). Short quizzes are included to test your knowledge on the theory and practical self-evaluation logs are included for you to check-in on yourself and how you are progressing.
As the modules are accessible online, you are free to complete the course at your own pace. Follow the directions and have access to a facilitator of the Play of Life if ever you have any questions or need assistance. This course is easy to access and to follow as it guides you step by step through the theory and the techniques.
Once enrolled you will also have access to the private Facebook group and our quarterly videoconferences with updates and case studies from Carlos, connecting the Play of Life global community.
Levels of Accreditation
Philosophy & Approach
Show Me introduces you to the foundational neuroscience, philosophy and approach to the Play of Life method and certifies you to use the Play of Life with the Show Me technique. This technique is the original and foundational technique and approach of the Play of Life (taking us back to when it was called Le Petit Psychodrama.)
The training includes:
- The neuroscience behind the method – how to access and maintain bottom-up brain communication.
- The philosophy behind the method – how this flows through the application of the method.
- The approach – learning and applying psychodramatic techniques through 3D Playmobil figures and/or the Play of Life Digital App.
- Integration of the method – finding ways to integrate the method into your line of work and currently used methods. Adding to your toolkit to help people.
Format: A 2 day face-to-face/ZOOM online workshop
Certification: At the completion of the workshop, you will be certified to use the Show Me technique with Play of Life figures and app. This is the first level of Play of Life certification and is a starting point for deeper levels of accreditation.
NOTE: This does not accredit you as a Play of Life facilitator beyond the Show Me technique.
