Why Play Therapy?

Maria Montessori has been quoted as stating that "Play is the work of the child" and research also backs up this idea. Play's benefits to children are numerous, in which it can be particularly helpful to children who are experiencing behavioral, emotional, social and learning challenges that could be also connected to life changes/transitions, illness and trauma.

From the Association of Play Therapy https://www.a4pt.org/page/PTMakesADifference/Play-Therapy-Makes-a-Difference.htm

"Play Therapy helps children to:

  • Become more responsible for behaviors and develop more successful strategies.
  • Develop new and creative solutions to problems.
  • Learn to experience and express emotion.
  • Cultivate empathy and respect for thoughts and feelings of others.
  • Learn new social skills and relational skills with family.
  • Develop self-efficacy and thus a better assuredness about their abilities."
