Did You Know Midtown provides certified Play Therapy?  Perhaps one of our best kept secrets is that Midtown has a very successful Play Therapy Program with a dedicated "play room" at the Midtown Center (Room 204).

 

Play Therapy uses a variety of play and creative arts techniques to alleviate chronic, mild and moderate psychological and emotional conditions in children that are causing behavioral problems and/or are preventing children from realizing their potential.

 

Midtown Play Therapists have the option of using a wide range of play and creative arts techniques, mostly responding to the child's wishes and in so doing, forming a trusting therapeutic relationship with the young client.  Our counselors work systemically, taking into account the social environment of clients, which may include peers, siblings, family, and school.

 

Play therapy may be non-directive (where the child decides what to do in a session, within safe boundaries), directive (where the therapist leads the way) or a mixture of the two and is particularly effective with children who cannot, or do not, want to talk about their problems.

 

If you visit the Midtown Center you'll discover that we have a wonderful, dedicated play therapy environment in Suite 204.  This room is equipped with "toys" specially selected by our play therapists to aid in encouraging children to share their thoughts and feelings.  Play accessories include a sand table with a full complement of figures, tactile toys, children's furniture, building sets and costumes, to name a few.
