ゴリラの着ぐるみを着た子鹿たちの心を癒すには、怒りを個人的に受け取らないこと、そして彼らにとって怒りが自分自身を守るための手段であることを理解する必要があります。 目には見えないけれど心の奥底に確かに存在している傷を抱えて痛みで苦しんでいるのです。 そうした子ども達が安心し、張り詰めた感情に向き合うのを支援するため、クレンショー博士は独自のプレイ・セラピーの手法を開発しました。  クレンショー博士は臨床医や学校関係者をはじめ、子どもの怒りに取り組む人々に対し彼のテクニックの指導を行っています。


デービッド・クレンショー博士は、過去にはNew York Association of Play Therapyの代表も勤めており、実績豊富で評価も高い臨床心理学者です。  また、クレンショー博士は、彼が設立したRhinebeck Child and Family Center、書籍、ビデオやプロジェクティブ・テクニック、そして指導力など自身のキャリアを通して攻撃的な子ども達を支援するために身を捧げています。

クレンショー博士とRhinebeck Child and Family Centerでは、下記のサービスを提供しています。

  • チャイルド・セラピー/ファミリー・セラピー
  • コンサルテーション
  • 育成・指導
  • 講演
  • ワークショップ
  • 放送・印刷メディアインタビュー
