Child Play Therapy (PT) & Developmental Play Therapy (DPT):|
Dr. Gangarosa-Emerson uses play in therapy to capture the child's attention
and increase compliance. Once family and/or behavior problems have been addressed, some children may also be good candidates
for Child Play Therapy. In PT, children are allowed the opportunity to work out individual issues in
play with the guidance of the therapist.
Other children who have poor attachments may be good candidates for
Developmental Play Therapy (DPT) where the therapist-child bond is used to
increase positive attachments in the child's life with caring adults.
