Study type Taught


Play is essential for the development of children. As play therapists, students take the lead in nurturing troubled children and helping them to grow emotionally, mentally and socially through the use of self-expression and creative mediums. Students help children come to terms with traumatic events in their lives through the use of a play toolkit, which includes sand, clay, puppetry and other creative mediums, where the child has the freedom and opportunity to express themselves by recreating their own world.
