Effective successful therapy relies on communication and the relationship between therapist and patient. Play therapy allows for the relationship, and improves the communication with children. Children live in their own world. Effective therapy goes to their world and brings back the information to the adult world. Charting behaviors and rewarding positive behaviors are effective techniques for eliminating and decreasing negative behaviors.
