PANDAS AND PANS IN THE PLAYROOM
Presented By: Ga¬brielle Anderson, LMFT
2.0 hour training (CEUs pending)

Training Summary: Everyone has anxiety or depressive feelings from time to time, but sometimes children experience excessive worry thoughts, OCD thoughts and behaviors, panic or debilitating depression with no known cause. This training is designed to talk about the difference between regular mental health struggles in the therapeutic playroom and those as a result of possible infection.
Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections (PANDAS) and Pediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (PANS) will be explored and described as possible explanations for mental health symptoms that may not make sense in children in the play therapy environment. Participants will also be taught different play therapy tools and strategies to help clients suffering with infection.

Learning Objectives:
1. Identify and list common infections that can impact mental illness in children in play therapy
2. List gene mutations that can create mental health symptoms in children in play therapy
3. Be able to identify signs and symptoms of encephalitis (inflammation of the basil ganglia) in children in play therapy
4. Learn the role that play and art therapy can have on a child experiencing encephalitis
5. Be able to identify why and when playful Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) strategies may be helpful in a child with infection
6. Be able to learn and use new art/play therapy tools to help one suffering with encephalitis and infection
