The occurrence of a traumatic event in a child’s life does not just impact the child. The caregivers of the child also are impacted by the psychological stress of the trauma. Caregivers seeking play therapy for their children will benefit if they are given tools to help them navigate the healing process for both the child and themselves. As a play therapist, learning the steps to facilitate this process and how to help the adults become instruments of healing, increases the effectiveness of the child’s treatment.
