All our childhood memories are full of the times we squandered in play. Each memory of that time has a special place in our heart. This play, though at that point looked aimless, had more to give than we think it did. Play is the natural world of the child. It is in this world that children learn about themselves, others and become aware of the world around "theirs".
Therapeutic play therapy is a specialized treatment in which therapists play with the child and through this play, observe, diagnose and provide interventions.These techniques are efficiently used while watching kids play. These observations are used to help them deal with their emotional, mental, or behavioural issues. Play therapy is a highly structured and organizedform of play. It provides the child a healthy and comfortable atmosphere while at the same time makes it enjoyable, to work on their mental health. There is a range of different types of techniques used in play therapy.These techniques are used according to the child's emotional and psychological needs. The therapist could use a directive or a non-directive approach depending on the needs of the child.
