Play Therapy involves the use of play to communicate with children and to help children learn to solve problems and change negative behaviors. Children naturally engage in play to create meaning and organize experiences. This allows children to distance themselves from difficult feelings and memories through symbolic expression, using the toys as the medium to disclose these feelings.
At Mended Families we specialize in helping children as young as age 4 with behavioral and emotional difficulties, family transitions such as separation or divorce, school stress, abuse and more. We use directional and non-directional play therapy techniques for assessment and treatment and request parental or guardian involvement in the therapeutic process for best outcomes.
