SPOTLIGHT PlayWorks Counseling Center Behavioral Health Solutions and Play Therapy Susan Falck, MSW, LCSW, PC

Play is becoming less valued in our culture for multiple reasons, not limited to busy parents and high-tech video games. So can a field of mental health focusing on therapy through play survive? Experts in the mental health field agree and believe “play is as important to human happiness as is love and work” (Schaefer 1993). Play lifts our spirits, expands self-expression, and brightens our outlook on life. Play stimulates creative exploration and thinking, relieves stress, positively connects people, regulates emotions and supports greater self-confidence (Landreth, 2002). According to experts, play allows us to practice skills and roles needed for survival as well as learning and development (Russ, 2004). There is more to play therapy than just playing. It is a specialized area of practice requiring extensive training and experience. Play therapy helps children express their emotions, thoughts, and experiences. “Toys are the child’s words and play is their language” (Landreth, 2002). Along with a safe and trusting relationship, play therapy provides a corrective emotional experience necessary for healing. It brings resolution of inner conflicts; the learning of adaptive behaviors; provides insight and promotes cognitive development (Gil, Landreth, Moustakas, Schaefer, O’Connor Pedro-Carroll & Reddy). The Association for Play Therapy (APT) defines play therapy as “the systematic use of a theoretical model to establish an interpersonal process wherein trained therapists use the therapeutic powers of play to help clients prevent or resolve psychosocial difficulties and achieve optimal growth and development.”

Play therapy is especially appropriate for children 2-12 years; however, everyone can benefit from play therapy. Play therapy interventions are used to address grief, loss, family dissolution, and trauma. It is used to help children with academic and social development, anxiety, depression, anger management, ADHD, autism or developmental, physical and learning disabilities. The research supports the effectiveness of play therapy in helping children with life stressors such as hospitalization, divorce, death, relocation, physical and sexual abuse, domestic violence, chronic illness, and natural disasters (Gil, Landreth, Sweeny, Ray, Homeyer & Glover, Schaefer). Play Therapy benefits children who have involvement in the school system, family courts, and criminal justice systems. Susan Falck was in Graduate School in 1997 when she first learned of play therapy. She studied in the Applied Psychology Dept. at Eastern Washington University. Although Susan was pursuing her degree in Clinical Social Work, she fell in love with this powerful way to work with children. Play Therapy and helping children would become her passion. Susan has extensive training in child development and play therapy, trauma, grief and bereavement. She is a certified Clinical Trauma Professional and a certified Clinical Social Work Supervisor. Susan utilizes cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, narrative approaches along with client-centered, solution focused and strengths perspectives. Her style of service delivery is creative and unique. Susan believes a therapeutic alliance with her clients is paramount to achieving goals. April 2013 | Bonners Ferry Living Local   7

Willing to Lend a Helping Hand? Join Idaho Gives on May 2nd Article by Patty Hutchens


n a community this size, word spreads quickly when there is someone in need. We have a vast array of organizations that help those friends, neighbors and colleagues who may have had a recent cancer diagnosis or lost a job. People need help with medical bills and are often forced to make the decision of spending what little money they have on either medication or groceries. It is a choice no one should have to make, but many times that is the reality. There are also the younger members of the community who may need a safe place to live to escape an abusive home life. Whatever the need, there are always people and businesses stepping forward to do what they can to make a difference in the lives of those around them. It is an observation echoed throughout this community. On May 2nd, people statewide will have an opportunity to go online and donate to a nonprofit of their choice, provided that organization has signed up for this special event. The day has been designated as Idaho Gives and is a day hosted by the Idaho Nonprofit Center which represents the interests of the 4,800 nonprofit organizations in the State of Idaho. In an effort to maximize the amount raised, a portion of every dollar donated will be matched with funds from the Idaho Gives award pool. There will also be an opportunity to receive bonus grants ranging from $250 to $3000.

Setting aside a specific day for donating to organizations whose sole mission is to help others, enhances the focus on various needs throughout the state. Organizations have an opportunity to share their mission and how they have made a difference in their communities. “This day is a unique celebration of the important role that our many nonprofits play in our communities,” said Lynn Hoffmann, Executive Director of the Idaho Nonprofit Center. “By focusing the public’s attention on the great work our nonprofits do, we hope to spur people into action on May 2, allowing them to pick their favorite charity, learn about other charities, and make a donation through the Idaho Gives web site.” This inaugural day of Idaho Gives is not unique. It is modeled after philanthropic giving days in states and cities throughout the United States. In some instances there has been millions of dollars raised in a period of just 24 hours. According to Hoffmann, social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter are critical tools in getting people, even those who don’t regularly contribute to nonprofits, to quickly and easily make a donation to their favorite organization. Hoffmann notes that the goal for this inaugural Idaho Gives day is to attract more than 5000 donors and to be able to give a

combined total of more than $500,000 to hundreds of nonprofits. Idaho Gives takes place primarily online and is driven by a central website, It is there where donors can educate themselves on various nonprofits and designate funds for specific categories, including arts and culture, children and youth, environment, humanitarian aid, education, animals, and religious organizations. According to organizers of Idaho Gives, people are curious as to how much of the donation will go directly to the nonprofit they select. The answer is over 93 percent. The remaining amount is used to fund the technology platform as well as administrative costs associated with the organization and promotion of the event. The importance of the inaugural Idaho Gives day is in part due to the economic challenges of the past several years. People have turned to nonprofits more than ever and those agencies have increasingly been asked to play an ever-growing role in serving communities and are often trying to do so with shrinking resources. The driving force behind the Idaho Nonprofit Center is to provide resources to build strong and accountable nonprofits as well as providing those agencies with a platform to gather community involvement and support for the nonprofit sector. According to organizers, an event like Idaho Gives serves that mission by shining the spotlight on Idaho’s nonprofits and the great work that they do. It also assists them by hopefully expanding their base of donor support.

The matching funds and bonus funds are funded by Idaho Gives sponsors. There will be several opportunities to multiply donations through hourly competitions, random drawings, and other giving incentives. The Idaho Nonprofit Center encourages any nonprofit with an IRS-certified 501(c)(3) designation to participate in the day. Idaho Gives offers nonprofits a unique opportunity to increase their profile, expand their online and social media presence, educate others on the work they are performing in their community, and perhaps most important, to raise the funds they need to continue the critical work they are doing in communities throughout the state. “Idaho ranks very high for the amount of time our citizens give to nonprofits. Idaho Gives will draw the entire state’s attention to the key role our nonprofits play in our communities and the importance of sustaining them with donations,” said Hoffmann. Interested nonprofits can find more information and register at the Idaho Nonprofit Center’s web site: For more information, go to, or look for Idaho Gives on Facebook and Twitter.

Tailor Choices to Address Health Issues ging gracefully is made easier through a focus on maintaining good health as you age. For women especially, this is no easy feat. But, as women age, maintaining a healthy lifestyle remains important, and there are a few issues that should be at the front of your mind in 2013.

Diet and lifestyle choices must be tailored to address common women’s health issues, including the risk of heart disease — the number one killer of women — as well as the loss of muscle mass and bone density.

over the long term. Intakes of calcium below recommended levels have health consequences, such as causing low bone mass (osteopenia) and increasing the risks of osteoporosis and bone fractures. Women should aim to get between 1,000 and 1,300 milligrams of calcium per day, depending on age, making calcium rich foods vital.

According to the American Heart Association, a healthy diet and lifestyle are your best weapons to fight heart disease. Unfortunately, many women may not always recognize the warning signs and symptoms of a heart attack because they sometimes appear more subtle when compared with those typically experienced by men. “Women need muscle, especially as they age. By about age 40, women gradually start to lose muscle mass,” explains registered dietitian, Marie Spano, MS, RD. “In general, it is recommended that 10-35 percent of your daily calories come from protein.” Digestive issues are another health concern for women. More than 4 million Americans have issues with constipation, making constipation one of the most common gastrointestinal complaints in the country, and those reporting constipation most often are women and adults ages 65 and older. Here are Spano’s tips to help women maintain good health as they age: • Reduce your risk of heart disease by practicing healthy lifestyle habits — exercise regularly, control blood pressure and cholesterol levels, eat well, maintain a healthy weight and don’t smoke. • Make sure you get enough calcium,

10   Bonners Ferry Living Local |

• Unless instructed by your physician, avoid diets that call for eliminating certain food groups completely; this can result in a nutrient deficiency. When dieting or cutting calories, choose nutritious foods that deliver sufficient vitamins, minerals and fiber. • To avoid digestive issues, drink enough fluids throughout the day to stay hydrated, exercise and eat fiber. Daily fiber recommendations are 25-38 grams for adults 50 and under and 21-30 grams per day for those 51 and older. Women tend to be more constipated than men, and fiber can help keep you regular. “Even women with healthy habits will sometimes experience occasional constipation. But it doesn’t have to interfere with your daily life. I recommend a product that contains a natural vegetable laxative ingredient, such as Senokot Tablets, which can be an effective choice to treat occasional constipation,” says Spano. Log onto www. for more advice on relieving occasional constipation.

Make Baths a Regular Part of Your Day


ot baths have been used for centuries to soothe ailments such as rheumatism, insomnia, diabetes, many forms of arthritis and even lower back pain. So it’s not surprising that many studies have shown the benefits of hydrotherapy for seniors. A study of elderly patients with chronic heart failure showed that hydrotherapy seems to improve these individuals’ exercise capacity. Research has also shown that regular, gentle exercise can improve an arthritic joint by nourishing the cartilage and easing stiffness in which hydrotherapy is particularly helpful. Here are a few tips to help you benefit from your own hydrotherapy experience: • Take time to relax. Don’t put a time limit on your bath. Instead, take a moment to sit back and let your stress melt away. You can even try some deep-breathing techniques.

• Invigorate your senses. Try adding essential oils to your bath water. Chamomile or lavender are ideal for relaxation while jasmine rejuvenates the mind and basil helps restore one’s muscles. • Watch your water temperature. You don’t always need a hot bath to get the benefits of hydrotherapy. Let the ailment you are treating and your personal health conditions determine your bath water temperature. • Create a safe environment. There is a risk that seniors, especially the frail elderly, can fall getting into and out of the bathtub. That’s why Premier Bathrooms has created a variety of bathing solutions, such as tubs individuals can walk into and sit in at a chair level or be mechanically lifted into and out of. Premier’s baths have hydrotherapy jets that are fitted at the base of the bath, allowing


tiny bubbles to massage and increase the blood flow to extremities in a safe environment. For more information about Premier’s hydrotherapy system, visit or call 1.800.578.2899.

“Expert Tree Trimming” Free Estimates High Standards Honest Service

——— Two elderly women were out driving in a large carboth could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along they came to an intersection. The stoplight was red but they just went on through. The passenger turned to the other woman and said, “Mildred! Did you know we just ran a red light! You could have killed us!” Mildred turned to her and said “Oh, am I driving?” ——— There’s a little fellow named Junior who hangs out at Tim Alley’s Grocery Store. The owner Tim doesn’t know what Junior’s problem is, but the boys like to tease him. They say he is two bricks shy of a load. To prove it, sometimes they offer Junior his choice between a nickel and a dime. He always takes the nickel, they say, because it’s bigger.

“You must take the loyalty oath first,” responded the passport clerk. “Raise your right hand, please.” The old gal raised her right hand. “Do you swear to defend the Constitution of the United States against all its enemies, domestic or foreign?” was the first question. The little old lady’s face paled and her voice trembled as she asked in a small voice: “Uhhh... all by myself?” ——— A couple drove several miles down a country road, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument, and neither wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules and pigs, the wife sarcastically asked, “Relatives of your’s?” “Yep,” the husband replied, “In-laws.” ———

One day after Junior grabbed the nickel, Tim got him off to one side and said, “Junior, those boys are making fun of you. They think you don’t know the dime is worth more than the nickel. Are you grabbing the nickel because it’s bigger, or what?”

When Jerry’s daughter, Dani, was about 5 years old, she was thoroughly impressing her grandparents with her knowledge of insects while they were out for a walk. She readily identified ants, grasshoppers, crickets, ladybugs and such.

...Junior said, “Well, if I took the dime, they’d quit doing it!”

When they happened upon a small beetle she did not immediately recognize, she looked at it thoughtfully, raised her foot and stomped it into oblivion on the sidewalk.

An old lady had always wanted to travel abroad. She began by going in person to the Passport Office and asking how long it would take to have one issued.

‘That one’, she said, ‘is a Squashed Bug.’
