Play is the language of children and how they communicate their thoughts and feelings. Child centered play therapy allows a child to explore what’s going on in their lives in a safe environment while using play in therapy helps with development of coping skills to manage emotional disregulation, behavioral challenges, and social situations.
Children do not have the insight or vocabulary to verbalize their feelings or experiences, so it is naturally difficult for them to talk about things that worry or upset them. Playing is an essential part of children’s expression, cognitive development and emotional well-being. Therefore, therapy for young children is held in a therapeutic play room where they can demonstrate their problems to the therapist through their play activity. Generally speaking, play therapy can be a useful therapeutic tool with children ages 3 to 12, although older or younger children may benefit.
