Therapeutic Play

Therapeutic play has as its main objective the emotional well being of the child and is non-judgmental, non-directive and non-interpretive. The Therapeutic Specialist uses the medium of play and creative arts such as the sand tray with which the child may recreate their world.

This process enables the child to make sense of their world, to gain control of their emotions and to develop strategies to deal with situations in real life more appropriately.
