Play Therapy in Jackson, MS

Even though it can be often used with adults, play therapy is actually a psychotherapeutic method primarily utilized with children ages 3 to 12 in order to help them explore their lives and freely express repressed thoughts and emotions via play. Therapeutic play usually occurs in a safe, comfortable playroom, whereby few if any rules or regulations are enforced on the child, encouraging free expression and allowing the therapist to observe the child’s choices, decisions, and play style. The goal is to help children learn to express themselves in healthier ways, become more respectful and empathetic, and discover new and more positive ways to solve problems.
