PLAY THERAPY

 

WHAT IS PLAY THERAPY?

Play therapy is a structured, theoretically based approach to therapy that builds on the normal communicative and learning processes of children. The curative powers inherent in play are used in many ways. Therapists strategically utilize play therapy to help children express what is troubling them when they do not have the verbal language to express their thoughts and feelings. In play therapy, toys are like the child’s words and play is the child’s language. 

Play Therapy Can:

  • Help children learn more adaptive behaviors.

  • Provides a corrective emotional experience necessary for healing

  • Promote cognitive development

  • Provide insight about and resolution of inner conflicts or dysfunctional thinking in the child

  • Heal from trauma, loss, and/or grief experiences
