For children, play is the easiest way to express things.

It might show up in what they are playing with, their behaviors and their attitude. Using play in therapy removes the pressure from talking and frees kids up to share what they are thinking about and feeling through play.

Play therapy means counseling for kids that feels like fun, and helps them define their feelings and cope with everyday life in a positive way.
