Child Play Therapy
What is Play Therapy?
APT defines play therapy as “the systematic use of a theoretical model to establish an interpersonal process wherein trained play therapists use the therapeutic powers of play to help clients prevent or resolve psychosocial difficulties and achieve optimal growth and development.”
“Play therapy is based upon the fact that play is the child’s natural medium of self-expression. It is an opportunity which is given to the child to ‘play out’ his feelings and problems just as, in certain types of adult therapy, an individual ‘talks out’ his difficulties” Axline,1969.
What type of child benefits from Play Therapy?
Play is a natural medium of expression for children. Play bridges the gap between concrete experience and abstract thought. When play is combined with a therapy prospective, Play Therapy, this can help the child organize and navigate through their personal experience, which can lead to positive outcomes. Children that benefit from this approach are children that struggle with trust or opening up to adults and/or other children, and appear withdrawn or introverted. Play Therapy can also be a successful medium for the more reactive, attention seeking and aggressive child. Play therapy helps with a number of emotional and behavior related issues and can help the child achieve success and grow in all areas of life.
