Play therapy involves the use of play to communicate with children. In the presence of a caring and accepting therapist, the toys become the children’s words, allowing them to express their thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a way that is freeing. Through this positive relationship the therapist can help children build confidence, social skills, communication skills, problem-solving abilities, and to make better behavior choices.
