At Ward & Associates, we specialize in Therapeutic Play, a child-centered approach that utilizes play as a means of communication and healing for children facing emotional or behavioral challenges.
WHAT IS THERAPEUTIC PLAY?
Therapeutic Play is a specialized form of therapy designed for children aged 3 to 12 years old. It provides a safe space for children to express their emotions, process difficult experiences, and develop coping skills through play-based activities. Therapeutic Play is guided by trained therapists who understand the unique needs of children and create a supportive environment where they can explore their feelings and thoughts.
HOW DOES THERAPEUTIC PLAY WORK?
Children engage in various play activities such as art, toys, storytelling, and role-playing under the guidance of a trained therapist. These activities help children explore their thoughts and feelings, develop problem-solving skills, and address emotional challenges in a supportive environment. Through play, children can process difficult experiences, build resilience, and develop healthy coping mechanisms.
