Play Therapy for dealing with Trauma

Play Therapy for dealing with Trauma

If you have ever tried to help loved ones experiencing prolonged, acute stress or someone trying to deal with a past traumatic experience, you may have noticed and realised that talking to them doesn’t seem to yield much success. These issues can so deeply affect people that verbalising them may be so difficult that it no longer becomes an option.

Play therapy allows people who are experiencing emotional or behavioural issues to open up their emotions in the safe space of the ‘playroom’, where they are allowed to face their thoughts and emotions nonverbally.

  • Play allows children to learn how to develop a better sense of their abilities and gives them more confidence.
  • Play allows children to develop creative problem solving abilities.
  • Play allows children to learn about empathy and respect for feelings of others by giving them space to get in touch with their own thoughts and feelings.
