Therapy for Children
Adapted from Jeannie's BRAVE Childhood
My introduction to the world of child therapy occurred when I tagged along to the ATTAch conference with a group of therapists. While sitting in the sessions listening to professionals describe their work with children who have suffered attachment wounding and trauma, I was sure Wonderland had materialized.
If I, as a child, could have accessed the professional expertise of these therapists, BRAVE would be a completely different book. I would not have waited until past the age of sixty to advocate for traumatized children!
The therapy modalities used by child/play therapists hold immense power because they enable the child to process through the natural avenue of play—and often allow them to be able to experience play again. It is easy to misjudge the depth of work taking place through what only appears to be child’s play!
