for Play Therapy - The Play Therapy's mission is to encourage
the unique development and emotional growth of children through the
process of play therapy, a dynamic interpersonal relationship between
a child and a therapist trained in play therapy procedures.
The therapist provides the child with selected play materials and
facilitates a safe relationship to express feelings, thoughts, experiences
and behaviors through play, the child's natural medium of communication.
To fulfill its objectives, the center provides training, research,
publications, counseling services and scholarships, and acts as a
clearinghouse for literature in the field. 3/5
