PLAY THERAPY

“Play Therapy is beneficial to a child who is experiencing difficulties in the home, school or community. It is a therapeutic approach for human service professionals and as stated by Virginia Axline, “provides an opportunity for the child to ‘play out’ his or her feelings and problems just as, in certain adult therapy, an individual ‘talks out’ his or her difficulties”. A child’s self-understanding is one of the goals in this approach. Play Therapy can be used either as a primary or adjunct therapy in settings such as , Children’s Services, Community Agencies, Psychiatric Centers, Children’s Hospitals, Schools, and Women’s Shelters. Play Therapists work with children individually, with their families and in group settings.” #Therapy #Play Therapy
