Play Therapy While some adults may feel comfortable talking about their feelings, this type of discussion is often awkward for kids. Oftentimes , they don't have the vocabulary or emotional regulation skills necessary to verbalize their internal experience. Kids express emotion through their natural language, play.
Play therapy provides the tools (selective toys, games and activities) in a safe and nurturing environment to give the child/ren (and/or family) the opportunity to express a wide range of emotion, process pain, and learn new coping skills.
