While some children can benefit from individual play therapy, there are also many who can benefit from Family Play therapy. As a Foundational Theraplay® Practitioner, parent(s) and/or guardian(s) join me and their child in sessions, to learn how to understand what their child needs. Through tailored playful activities, Theraplay® sessions allow the parent(s) or guardian(s) an opportunity to gain a greater understanding of how to interact and respond to their child, so that the family can better respond to the child's behaviors. This ultimately allows for a stronger bond and relationship between the family.
Potential outcomes of this type of therapy include:
Parents becoming greater experts on their child's needs
Parents learning tailored playful activities and/or interventions to help their child feel more secure and confident
A reduction in the child's challenging behavior
