Play Continuum Frequently Asked
Question 2: Is someone who uses
therapeutic play skills with children a Play Therapist?
For someone using therapeutic play the aim is not to form a medium or long term
therapeutic relationship with the child in the way that a Play Therapist does.
Therapeutic play is extremely valuable in dealing with lower order conditions
before they become entrenched and in detecting children who need longer term
and more specialised help.
A Play Therapist will usually have more
skills and experience in using a play therapy tool-kit.
