Theraplay Techniques

Why Would a Family Benefit From Theraplay Activities?


Theraplay treatment focuses on a child’s relationship with their parents to encourage healthy attachment. Attachment therapy can greatly benefit new and established families. This techniques is especially benifical for a family who has recently adopted a child. To ensure a healthy relationship is developed between parent and child in a positive and trusting way, the therapist will guide parents to structure each session in support of the key treatment goals.


An attachment assessment, called the Marschack Interaction Method, will be conducted before the therapist creates treatment goals. The goals will consist of the basic parenting building blocks such as structure, nurture, engagement or challenge. Sessions focus on gentle touch and are always spontaneous, exciting, joyful and fun!
