4 April 2015
An analysis of different methods of play therapy and their successes and failures when dealing with children.

This paper is a detailed examination of play therapy and its purpose. The writer provides an understanding of what play therapy is and how it is administered. The author describes how it is mainly used with young children who are too young to participate in an adult-like therapy setting. The paper details the process involved in the administering of this type of therapy, including the setting, the duration of the sessions, the method of evaluation and in what situations this therapy is used most successfully. The paper then discusses the different types of therapy and when to apply them.
“Research has determined that this type of therapy is most effective for children between the ages of 2 and 10. The therapy is effective in this age range because it is the age range in which children communicate best through play and do not communicate as effectively through their verbal skills. The children are encouraged to choose any toy they want from the hundreds of choices presented in the therapist office. They are also encouraged to play in a sand box in the office because sand has been shown to be relaxing for the patient.”
