Sandplay. Storytelling. Art. Role playing. Games. This is the language of children.
Children are designed to play. Long before they are able to talk, children learn to interact with their world and the people in it by curious exploration – by playing. Play is the natural language of children. In play therapy, children are given the opportunity to play out feelings and experiences they are not developmentally equipped to talk about.
Play therapy is a research-based discipline that has been used for decades. Play therapy sessions take place in a play room that is equipped with a special selection of toys. Most play therapy sessions are one-on-one, though small sibling groups or families may sometimes be seen together. At Upside Down Therapy, play therapy sessions are sometimes child-led, meaning the child has the freedom to choose how to use the time in the playroom, and sometimes guided by the therapist.
Play therapy capitalizes on the power of play to help children learn to develop self-control and problem-solving skills, accept responsibility, and manage the unmanageable in their worlds.
