Therapeutic play is used to help children with social or emotional deficits learn to communicate better, develop problem-solving skills, express repressed thoughts and emotions, or change their behavior in a positive way. It is primarily used to help children ages 3-12.
At The EFT Clinic our therapists provide a safe, comfortable play therapy experience for each child client. Play Therapy is often used for a child who has witnessed stressful events in their lives such as a serious illness or hospitalization, domestic violence, abuse, trauma, a family crisis, or an upsetting change in their environment. Play therapy can help children with academic and social problems, anxiety, depression, grief, learning disabilities, behavioral disorders, or anger, as well as those with attention deficit disorders or who are on the autism spectrum.
