Play in Therapy

Play Therapy

Play in therapy can be used to improve self-esteem, promote responsible behavior, teach coping skills, encourage problem-solving, and develop self control.

Goals of play in therapy:

  • Help children understand themselves and others
  • Identify children with special needs and facilitate appropriate interventions.
  • Help children feel better about themselves by building their self-esteem and self-confidence.
  • Help children develop problem-solving abilities and teach decision making skills.
  • Help children cope with life events.
  • Help children deal with testing anxiety and pressure.

We teach new habits! We use repetition, and work one on one with the child in their play to encourage better coping skills in a fun environment.
