Play-Based Therapy

Play-based therapy is a type of psychotherapy that uses activities to help children develop social, emotional, and behavioral skills. Play-based therapy provides a fun and engaging environment for children to learn and practice critical skills naturally and developmentally appropriate. Play therapy is often employed for children with a history of trauma or abuse by allowing them to process and express themselves through play with dolls and other toys. 

Play materials help children explore their emotions, practice social skills, and develop problem-solving and communication skills. The therapist may also use role-playing, storytelling, and imaginative play to assist the child in working through difficult experiences or challenges.

High-achieving teens aim, at the very minimum, to maintain…
