Q: What is play therapy? And do you use play therapy?
A: Yes, we do use play therapy! Children don't do well tolerating the logic of talk therapy. Their natural language is play! Play disarms fear. Play gives children a chance to confront difficult topics or problems in a way that reaches them best. We seek to help children have correct emotional experiences & learn how to express them in ways that get their needs met best. Children can work through trauma,& they can do that through play. Play therapy can be done with sand trays, narrative forming, & acting things out with dolls or puppets. Play therapy can be structured or unstructured.
