FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PLAY THERAPY
Play is a child's natural medium of expression. Just as adults use words to talk out their experiences, children use play. Toys are words for children. Children's play is meaningful and significant to them. Through their play children extend themselves into areas they have difficulty entering in verbally. Children are able to use play to express what they cannot say, do what they would feel uncomfortable doing, and express feelings they might otherwise be reprimanded for verbalizing.
