Play Therapy is an effective approach for individual children who have experienced an upsetting event. Parent or carer are regularly updated and progress discussed. Theraplay and DDP are attachment based therapies, which take place between child, parent and therapist and can be particularly useful for fostered and adopted children or birth families, where there has been a difficulty in the family.
