What To Know About Play Therapy
Medical professionals frequently recommend play therapy to children because they may be unable to process their own emotions or articulate problems to parents or other adults. Play therapy can also help adults, as well as children, learn new coping mechanisms and how to redirect inappropriate behaviors. Studies show up to 71% of children referred to play therapy may experience positive change. As the patient-therapist relationship strengthens, the patient may find themselves deepening relationships with loved ones, reducing anxiety, and taking more responsibility for certain behaviors. The adult or child may also learn to express their authentic emotions, develop more self-respect, and have more empathy and respect for others.
