Common Play Therapy Techniques
The techniques and structure of a play therapy session can vary dramatically depending on the child’s needs and goals. For example, one common therapeutic play technique is to use dolls, action figures, or stuffed animals to act out stories. This can help the child recreate stressful or scary experiences in a way that feels safe and approachable. Another common technique is to use arts and crafts as an expressive outlet for the child. Even if they struggle to articulate their feelings in words, they can use their art as a representation of their emotions.
