Parent-Child Attachment Play
This is a gentle play-based approach which supports families with their children’s behaviour and emotional wellbeing. It is a gentle, play-based approach delivered in a small group each week.
Parent-Child Attachment Play looks at three different skills for the parent to use with their child at home, enabling parents to begin a short weekly ‘you and me’ play or activity time at home with their child.
The sessions take place in a relaxing atmosphere, accompanied by hot drinks and cakes, they give parents a great opportunity to share experiences and learn how to move forward with lots of support.
Play is a natural part of children’s lives. The toys are their words, play their language.
Play Therapy provides a safe environment for children to work through what is troubling them. It uses a variety of tools such as clay, puppets, sand, art, craft and drama to help children resolve their difficulties.
Play Therapy can be helpful for children that have a range of difficulties, including:
- Separated or divorced home environment
- Abuse or neglect
- Being bullied or bullying
- Behavioural difficulties
- Emotional difficulties such as anxiety, low self-esteem or aggression
- Problems socialising
