Play therapy is a well researched mode of psychotherapy for children. Children lack the cognitive maturity to work though their problems sitting and talking. Their creative and problem solving processes happen through play, and playful interaction. The Play therapist uses specific language and play techniques which facilitate children’s ability to: build frustration tolerance, increase attention span, develop impulse control, learn, communicate, process, grow, express, create, problem solve, develop confidence, and meet their ultimate potential.

  • Depression
