Working with chldren in therapy requires special training in techniques that help the child express their emotions in ways other then verbally. Many children are unable to vebally express feelings and may act out their hurt by being aggressive or by withdrawal. Play Therapy helps the child learn about and express feelings through nonverbal modalities of toys, sand and art. The child is allowed to PLAY out his hurt and anger with the therapist providing the child with reflective emotional words about his/her play. The focus of this type of therapy is to provide a safe place for the child to emote and eliminate the internalization of emotions that lead to depression and anxiety.
