Course Details

Research has found Play to be an effective therapeutic medium for children in difficult and challenging circumstances such as family changes, separation and divorce,  new schools, chronic illness and even death and dying. It is a natural means for children to work out difficulties they might face such as in making friends; dealing with excessive anger, fear, sadness, worry and shyness.  Play also helps in dealing with issues emerging from aggression and acting out;  school difficulties; abuse and neglect; social adjustment; sleeping and eating difficulties; poor self concept and low self esteem; trauma; grief and loss; hospitalization; and adoption and identity.
