Theraplay® is a short-term, intensive, structured type of family therapy. Theraplay is a treatment approach that focuses on enhancing attachment between parent and child, and in that process helps the child develop a sense of belonging, trust in others, self-awareness and self-esteem.
Theraplay enhances attachment through playful, joyful, empathic and attuned responsiveness. The method is fun, physical, personal, and interactive. Typically parent and child participate in each therapy session. Parents also receive specific guidance regarding how to incorporate the therapeutic principles into the home setting.
