Play therapy is a standard method in the treatment ofchildren. Children have often experienced things that are difficult for them tounderstand or recover from. Since children are not at a developmental level totalk about their problems and feelings as adults would, play therapy provides away for the child to communicate what they are going through and release stressthat has built up inside.
Play therapy is based in many techniques, including gametherapy- which is using well known games in alternative capacities which areeducational or therapeutic. Play therapy is a tool our psychologists use tocommunicate with the child in a way the child understands, and creates aplatform upon which to identify and meet the emotional needs of the child.
