PANDAS, Lyme Disease and PANS are becoming talked about more and more. Sometimes children in the playroom present with OCD type symptoms, others hallucinate while others still may experience separation anxiety, school refusal or other confusing symptoms. Learn how encephalitis (inflammation in the brain), detox, diet and infection load can impact a child's emotional and mental health as well as impact his/her nervous system. Children with these infections can appear psychotic, shows signs of trauma or even appear suicidal. In this training, the presenter will walk through a play therapy intake process and discuss symptoms parallel to PANS/PANDAS so that participants will be able to identify specific symptoms to warrant a referral to a medical doctor for proper diagnosis. Participants will be able to identify playful strategies to use in the playroom when a child is referred who is already diagnosed with PANS/PANDAS.
