What is Play Therapy? Play therapy is proven to be an effective therapy that helps children modify behaviours, clarify self-concept, and build healthy relationships In Play Therapy children enter into a dynamic relationship with the therapist that enables them to express, explore and make sense of their difficult and painful experiences. Play Therapy helps children find healthier ways of communicating, develop fulfilling relationships, increase resilience, and facilitate emotional literacy. It is highly effective when children feel powerless in the face of their own emotions or experiences in their family or school life. By allowing them to determine both the nature, pace and outcomes of the work, it intrinsically increases the child's sense of self-efficacy which is acknowledged as a key component of resilience.
