Play therapy is a technique that is utilized to help children express themselves when it is difficult to verbally talk about their thoughts and feelings. The therapist is able to create a safe environment in which children can build on their skills and learn to cope with stress and find healthier solutions to their problems.
Play therapy fosters learning and development and can help children with interpersonal communication, expression of feelings, and behavior modification. It is effective in helping to treat adjustment issues, anxiety, depression, trauma and life stressors.
Play therapy is most beneficial for children ages 3-12, however, teens and adults can also find benefit in its use.
