As a therapist who is trained to provide interventions based on Theraplay principles, I have found that it is a valuable treatment modality that can help many children and their families. Through playful and healthy interactions between parent(s) and child, Theraplay can help improve parent-child relationships, self-esteem, and trust, and address children’s developmental, emotional, or behavioral issues.
Children of any age who can benefit from participating in Theraplay are those who:
- Are passive, depressed, aggressive, overactive, or withdrawn
- Have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
- Are afraid of bonding with their parent or caregiver because of trauma, losses, or adoption
