What is Play Therapy? | Playfulness | Scoop.it

Ever noticed how part of your inner self comes out when you write a story, poem or song?  Have you ever seen your inside reflected in a drawing, painting, or structure you created?  Well, that’s kinda how play therapy works.  Instead of talking out their concerns, children use toys and playful activities to gain understanding, process problematic issues and learn coping strategies.  Play therapy uses the natural communication of play in the therapeutic relationship to accept, respect and understand clients.
