College Hosts Early Years Workshops

Posted: March 7th 2018

30 local practitioners from Doncaster attended An Introduction to Play Therapy at Doncaster College, run by the department of Education, Health and Community Practice.

This introductory course provided an overview of the aims of play therapy and its effectiveness through the examination of evidence based data. Participants experienced non-directive play therapy for themselves through exploration of the play therapy toolkit.

Play therapy is a form of counselling or psychotherapy that uses play to communicate with and help children, to prevent or resolve psychosocial challenges. Evidence suggests this type of intervention can help them towards improving pro-social skills, emotional modulation and trauma resolution.
