Can you explain, in brief, what Theraplay Techniques are and what sessions entail?

Theraplay techniques are practical and play based. They aim to build relationships through fun interactive games and activities. The sessions are brief, usually thirty minutes, and lively! They aim to create opportunities for children to experience important aspects of relationships that are vital to building attachments. The parent and child will be supported by a therapist to play together using a specially designed programme which aims to address the particular issues that the child needs help with.
