Play Therapy

Play therapy is a form of psychotherapy that utilizes play as a means of communication and expression for children. It is based on the belief that play is the natural language of children and can be used to help them process and cope with emotional and behavioral difficulties.

There are two main types of play therapy: non-directive play therapy and directive play therapy.
