Theraplay Level 1 & MIM

Theraplay® is an evidenced-based, attachment-focused intervention utilising non-symbolic, interactional play to re-create experiences of secure attachment formation between parent and child. Therapist-guided short-term, dyadic therapy focuses on improving the child’s behavioural and emotional challenges through the parent-child relationship. In a session, the therapist guides the parent and child through playful games, challenging activities, and nurturing interactions. Theraplay® helps the child experience previously difficult interactions in new ways, helps overcome fear/ shame, increase trust, and create a positive change in the child’s sense of self. Theraplay® helps the parent be attuned to the child, understand the motives of the child’s behaviour and the underlying needs, manage environmental stimuli, and carefully challenge their child in a safe place. While other therapies may work primarily with the child alone or work with parents on managing the child’s behaviours, Theraplay® has shown that the parent-child relationship is the most powerful and influential element for change. It is also a complementary approach to Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (developed by Dan Hughes).

Theraplay® has been used successfully to help:

  • Children with developmental trauma
  • Shy, withdrawn children
  • Overactive, controlling or aggressive children
  • Foster/adoptive children with attachment difficulties
  • Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder & Pervasive Development Disorder
  • Children with physical disabilities, developmental delays or those who are non-verbal
  • Children who live in group settings
  • Early childhood students and others who receive services in group settings
