    Happy Camper Counseling proudly hosted the Austin Sandtray Association's April meeting. Local sandtray therapists gathered to learn new ways of optimizing space in a small play therapy room.  It was fun networking with other Austin therapists and share ideas on how to organize sandtray miniatures in a roll away cart.

  Emotional regulation isn’t something that comes easily to some children (or adults).  What can parents do to help their child learn to control their emotions? How about trying a calming jar?
 
  Calming jars are bottles filled with glitter and water used to help children take a moment to collect themselves during an emotionally turbulent time. Shaking the bottle and watching the glitter fall helps children settle down and become more peaceful and mindful.  It teaches children self-control, reflection and relaxation. 
 
  Check out the video below with counselor Hannah and her doggie assistant, Trixie. They are at Happy Camper Counseling to teach you how to build your own calming jar.
