Play therapy is the method of learning and brain development for all children, including adolescents. In order to effectively work with children, a therapist must be able to engage in various play therapy techniques including: sandtray, sensory play, expressive arts, developmental play, experiential play, creative play, collaborative play, and attachment-based play. For more information, please visit the leading national authority on play therapy and children, the Association for Play therapy at www.a4pt.org.
