Play is a critical part of child development and a natural form of expression for children. Play relieves stress and boredom, connects us to others, inspires creative thinking, regulates our feelings, and boosts our self-esteem. Children do not have the cognitive ability to express feelings with words like teens and adults. Play therapy is an evidence based treatment modality that allows children to express their feelings through toys rather than words. 

Benefits of Play Therapy:

  • Increase ability to tolerate and express feelings

  • Develop problem solving skills and coping skills

  • Build social and relational skills

  • Build self-esteem and self-efficacy

  • Cultivate empathy and respect for others

  • Mastery of developmental milestones

  • Increase frustration tolerance and regulate feelings
