Play therapy is a specialty service offered at Peaceful Insights. It is the most beneficial approach for children. Play is the language of children and toys are their words. Children (as most adults) have a unique capacity to move toward resolution of their internal struggles. Children have limited cognitive abilities and while they can often express themselves using words, expressing ones feeling through words alone is insufficient. While it is important for children to think differently to change behaviors, it is most important that children make changes at their core to remove the residual effects of trauma through discharging energy through gross motor movements inherent in play creating self-regulation. Therefore, allowing a child to use their most natural way of existing in the world, is how Peaceful Insights capatilizes on this powerful venue to help children heal.
