Children require different psychological treatments than adults or teens. Young children are not able to fully express their worries or concerns, and they do not understand the world around them. Children who have been the victims of abuse or bullying may think of the world as a dangerous place, and they withdraw in order to protect themselves.
With play therapy, the child is introduced to a safe and caring environment where they can free themselves to play, interact with others, and express their repressed thoughts and emotions. Play therapy has tons of positive benefits for children, and can help their brains to grow and develop. During play therapy, a therapist can observe the child’s actions in order to determine a proper course of treatment.
