Why Consider Therapy for Your Child?
There are many reasons that parents seek counseling or therapy for their child, and Mended Families is prepared to help with any of these causes. Most parents take their children for check-ups at the doctor, remind them to wash their hands and brush their teeth, but how many parents seriously consider their child’s mental health?
Play Therapy at Mended Families
We use a variety of play and creative arts techniques to help a young child starting at the age of four, who might be experiencing emotional and/or behavioral difficulties. These play techniques help a child to express what might be distressing them. This technique also allows the parent and the clinician insight as to how best to help the child adapt and use his/her inherent strengths to soothe and cope. Strategies and techniques for parenting can be integrated with the information gleaned through the play therapy sessions.
