Play Therapy Basic Training
For over 50 years, Child-Centered Play Therapy has helped children heal and grow through a therapeutic process that is best suited to children’s development. In play therapy, children are provided an opportunity to communicate, problem solve and develop through the most intuitive process in childhood; play.
