Play therapy is a type of psychotherapy that uses the medium of play to help children express their thoughts and feelings. Play therapy can be a powerful tool for helping children cope with various stressors and feelings. Children often find it easier to express themselves through toys or play than they do through words. The toys that are used in play therapy are carefully chosen as they have an emotional meaning for children.
The goal of play therapy is to help children understand themselves and others better, while also developing tools and coping skills. Play therapy can be used with children who have experienced trauma or abuse, as well as those who have been bullied. It can also help children with mental health issues such as depression or anxiety.
