Play Therapy

What is Play Therapy?

Play therapy is a psychotherapeutic approach used primarily in children ages 3 to 12. A play therapist strategically utilizes play to help children communicate what is troubling them when they do not have the verbal language to express thoughts and feelings (Gil, 1991). The goal of therapeutic play is to help children learn to express themselves in healthier ways, modify behavior, discover problem-solving skills and ways to relate to others.
