PDPSY 18 Introduction to Play Therapy

The language of play is a powerful therapeutic medium to help adults understand children and how they make sense of the world.

Children communicate through the use of play. Through play, they discover their interests, acquire cognitive, motor, speech, language, and social-emotional skills, develop and practise problem-solving skills, and explore interactions with people around them.

In this module, gain introductory knowledge on how children learn about the world around them and how to interact in their environment through the use of play.
