Play therapy helps kids work through worries, feelings
Center City Counseling Clinic is unique in its ability to offer play therapy in its work with young children. Play therapy is designed with selected toys that utilize the child's ability to enact the feelings and issues with which they are struggling, and do not yet have words to describe.
Research-based, play therapy assists children in becoming responsible for their behaviors, develop creative solutions to their own issues and experiences as well as to learn and appropriately express their emotions.
As an extension of services, Center City Counseling Clinic occasionally offers parents and other adult caretakers a 10-week parenting course. Those who sign up will meet once a week with instructors who will assist them in learning and utilizing some of the same skills we use here in our work with children.
In that time, participants will notice an improvement in their relationship with their child as well as the child's behavior. To be placed on a waiting list for the next available presentation, call 836-3215.
