Play therapy is a type of therapy that involves play as a means of communication between the therapist and the child. The therapist uses play to help the child express their emotions, thoughts, and experiences in a non-threatening and comfortable environment. Play therapy can help children deal with anxiety, depression, trauma, and behavioral problems.
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT)
PCIT is an evidence-based treatment program designed for caregivers and their young children (2 to 7 years old) experiencing social, behavioral, and emotional difficulties. The therapist helps the parent facilitate a warm, supportive relationship as a basis for the development of social skills and emotional regulation. PCIT is known to effectively treat many behavioral issues that can be challenging to parents.
