"Play is natural and spontaneous. Through play, children express emotions, master their environment and secure themselves in the world. In Play Therapy, the therapist and the child exchange through the play, securing the therapeutic relationship while seeking opportunities for safe resolution of emotional, behavioral and system challenges. It is the compassionate, responsible approach when seeking to understand the heart of the child."
Teri V. Krull, LCSW, RPT-S
