Individual Theraplay®

Theraplay® is a type of play therapy that aims to promote positive attachment between child and care-giver. The worker, the child and the care-giver are involved in playing various Theraplay® games to help explore trust and improve relationships. The therapist facilitates this play and will eventually leave the play to allow the parent and child to continue this process at home

Theraplay® can help children and care-giver with the following issues:

  • Disrupted attachment
  • Poor attachment
  • Separation and loss
  • New caregiver

The outcomes of Theraplay® can include:

Improved relationship between child and caregiver
