What is Play Therapy? – Counselors and Therapy in Chesterfield

Association for Play Therapy (APT) defines play therapy as “the systematic use of a theoretical model to establish an interpersonal process wherein trained play therapists use the therapeutic powers of play to help clients prevent or resolve psycho-social difficulties and achieve optimal growth and development.”

Play therapy allows children the opportunity to express themselves through the natural process of playing.”

This can range from toys, to drama, to art; if a child can use the medium to play, it can most likely be used for play therapy. The University of North Texas states that “play therapy is to children what counseling is to adults.”
