Use of Child Centered Play Therapy Responses in a Child Care Setting
Muro, Joel H.; Muro, Lilia Lamar; Rose, Katherine Kensinger; Webster, Lindsey; Allen, Cassie
Dimensions of Early Childhood, v45 n2 p13-19 2017
The communication process between care providers and children can, at times, be complex. Young children typically lack the verbal language necessary for complex emotional expression. In this article, the authors contend that using some basic "child centered play therapy" (CCPT) techniques would be beneficial in enhancing communicative patterns in a childcare setting. The use of CCPT responses by caregivers can be effective in encouraging emotional and social development in children. Because child care providers spend a great deal of time with children, this approach may lead to a more nurturing and stable relationship than parents are able to provide.
