Abstract

As a form of therapy, play enhances the developmentally progressive and adaptive nature of children and adults. Play helps children who have experienced physical, emotional, or sexual abuse display and deal with traumatizing thoughts they may be experiencing. When used correctly, the play therapy process can be an excellent tool in helping children who may be suffering from abuse. This paper will describe how school counselors can effectively employ play therapy in a school setting with children who are victims of abuse. The author of this paper will address components of the play therapy process, play behaviors of abused children, techniques to use with abuse victims, as well as appropriate play objects and play spaces needed for working with abuse victims.
