What Is Play Therapy? 

Play therapy is a method of therapy designed specifically for children that uses the universal language of play to help children express themselves. It helps children work through issues in a way that’s both effective and developmentally appropriate. Children can find the freedom to express their thoughts, feelings, and experiences, leading to emotional resilience and healthy coping skills.  

The American Psychological Association recognizes play therapy as an effective approach to helping children cope with a wide range of challenges, including trauma, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, and more. It allows children to communicate their inner world through toys, art materials, role-playing activities, and other forms of creative expression in a safe and supportive environment. 

Play Therapy Techniques 

At TRU Wellness Center, our play therapy encompasses various techniques, including: 

  • Art – Children can use art materials such as paints, clay, and markers to express their emotions and work through challenges. 
  • Sand play – Using miniature figures and a sandbox, children can create a safe world where they can explore their feelings and experiences. 
  • Storytelling – Children can use storytelling to make sense of their experiences, develop empathy and understanding, and find solutions to problems. 
  • Imaginative play – Through imaginative play, children can act out scenarios and explore different roles, allowing them to process emotions and develop problem-solving skills. 

Through these activities, children can communicate their thoughts, feelings, and experiences, fostering self-expression, emotional resilience, and healthy coping skills. These modalities are guided by our experienced therapists and are tailored to each child’s unique needs. Through play, children can release tension and work through challenging emotions while developing problem-solving skills and building self-esteem.
