Mission and Purpose

Our mission is to encourage the unique development and emotional growth of children through the process of play therapy, a dynamic interpersonal relationship between a child and a therapist trained in play therapy procedures. The therapist provides the child with selected play materials and facilitates a safe relationship to express feelings, thoughts, experiences and behaviors through play, the child's natural medium of communication. To fulfill its objectives, the center provides training, research, publications, counseling services and scholarships, and acts as a clearinghouse for literature in the field. Please feel free to look around and if you have any comments or questions you can reach us here.
