Who Is Play Therapy For?
In the process of growing up children often go through difficult times, which may cause them to experience painful emotions. This can cause them to behave in a way that creates problems that a child or their family may be unable to resolve alone.
Children with a life threatening condition, and their brothers and sisters, have to deal with experiences and emotions that are new and troubling. Play Therapy gives them an opportunity to work through those feelings and allows them to come to an understanding of what has occurred. The parents may also gain a better understanding of what their child may be going through.
Children who are bereaved by losing a close family member, someone that they love, can be left feeling overwhelmed but uncertain about how to manage their feelings. Play Therapy offers a safe environment where the children can work through their thoughts and feelings.
