If your child has attachment issues or has suffered a trauma, Healing Pathways of Springfield, Inc offers THERAPLAY™ treatments that are specifically tailored to mental health needs of a young child.
We encourage family participation in your child’s THERAPLAY™ sessions to achieve the best results.
How Do THERAPLAY™ Treatments Work?
THERAPLAY™ is a form of play therapy which is guided by a therapist. It is based on natural patterns of interactions between parents and children.
Traditionally, THERAPLAY™ treatments last for 10 sessions and focus on the 4 fundamentals of healthy parent-child relationships: structure, nurture, engagement, and challenge.
