Trauma Play

What is Trauma play

The TraumaPlay Institute™ has developed the TraumaPlay Model, a flexibly sequential play therapy model for treating children who have experienced extreme stress related to chronic maltreatment, discrete traumatic incidents, interpersonal trauma, or attachment disturbances due to caregiver disruptions.  

TraumaPlay™ is informed by our current understandings of the neurobiology of play and the neurobiology of trauma, and is built on the power of one to heal the other. Grounded in attachment theory, the child or family is met moment-to-moment as therapeutic needs are assessed.

 

TraumaPlay™ allows room for both non-directive and directive approaches to be employed and incorporates clinically sound elements of other evidence based treatments such as Child Centered Play Therapy, Theraplay, and Cognitive-Behavioural Play Therapy, while offering original interventions that were developed in real-world clinical settings to maximize therapeutic absorption
