Play Therapy: Value Beyond Words
Young children do not use words as readily as adults to express their feelings. Play therapy is a prime treatment modality for this reason. Children use play in the context of play therapy for very weighty purposes: for making meaning out of their experiences, even tragic events; for expressing & releasing intense emotion; and for coping with big challenges early in life. My guest Teri Krull is the former president of the Association for Play Therapy (APT) and the Arizona Association for Play Therapy (AzAPT) and a leading national figure in the field. This episode serves as an introduction to the very deep service of play therapy and the history of this unique and powerful treatment.
