SW 401BON Minecraft Play Therapy Intensive

Play therapy in the 21 century has gone both global and digital! Last year, the video game Minecraft had over 100 million registered users, of all ages, races, genders and socioeconomic status. Combining elements of sandbox games, MMOs and First-person shooters, this video game has won over gamers, educators and designers alike. And now social workers can harness the power of this game as a therapeutic tool. But did you know that Minecraft has a lot to teach us about how we pay attention to, get distracted from, and cope with things Embedded in the design and the lore of the game are nuggets of philosophy, neuroscience, and psychology. From work/life balance to physical and mental health to the meaning of life Minecraft has something to teach us. This session will investigate the nature of mind as illustrated by Minecraft, its different versions, and content. Drawing from CBT, DBT, psychodynamic theory and Theory of Mind, we’ll take a look at how this game creates a mediated environment for relationship, examples of affect regulation, and points the way toward deeper mindfulness and well-being.
