Play therapy focuses on helping children express their feelings and thoughts at their own developmental level and at their own pace. As play is the natural world for a child, it enables them to cummunicate effectively and to process difficulties they are experiencing in their lives – loss and grief, trauma, abuse and neglect, etc. Play is essential for children's social, emotional, cognitive, physical, creative and language development.
ChildPlayWorks provides comprehensive training in New Zealand in the specialised modality of Child-Centered Play Therapy. Our training programme is designed for part-time completion, with a 3 year total duration. We also provide professional development workshops to those who work with children.
