Play Therapy

Children, especially young children, often communicate best through play, rather than through talking. In play therapy the medium of communication is play. This includes play with toys, but also artistic expression, such as drawing, painting, or working with Playdough. The role of the therapist is to offer a safe, accepting, supportive, attentive, and responsive environment in which the child can explore, through the medium of play, issues that are painful and troubling. Children are amazingly resilient, and are often able, with the safety and acceptance the therapist provides, to “work through” what is bothering them.
