Play Therapy Room
JOSHUA’S FRIENDS PLAY THERAPY ROOM IS A CREATIVE DESIGN PLACE CAPTURING THE IMAGINATION OF THE CHILD IN EVERYONE
Our play therapy room provides children what words and talking provides adults. Adults find meaning in work and meet their felt needs through the medium and expressions found in communications that build positive relationships. Play is to children what work is to adults. Play’s the most natural outlet for children to communicate and express their feelings through interactive toys and games. Our multi-integrated play therapy room naturally sets the stage for interpersonal relationships. Building meaningful experiences and outcomes based on safe relationships and child directed play encounters. Through creatively designed environments, children are encouraged and allowed to find full expression of their innermost feelings, thinking processes, behavior patterns, and fully explore how they learn, grow and develop; through healthy age appropriate boundaries.
In our play therapy room, children of all ages can expect to engage a process that will help them identify their primary learning style. Understanding each child, is uniquely equipped with a dominant learning pattern, empowers everyone around them to provide educational experiences compatible with children’s individual mindset and natural mediums of learning. We also provide our very own “M.I.N.D Changers” encounters where children and their families can interactively participate in processes that are designed to be brain neurobics in nature. These kinds of interactions foster novel experiences that engage the mind in mental disciplines and workouts that are more enriching to the brain; providing healthy age and stage appropriate progress.
Transformational Family Systems of Care must meet children where they are, providing child-centered facilities designed specifically to capture children’s attention, and engage them with age appropriate initiatives that allow them to communicate, and be understood; by utilizing the power of child directed play paradigms. Toys and play are to children what talking and communicating are to adults. Allowing them to truly express themselves through the process of creative-design places, that permit them to “play out” and communicate their feelings in the language children naturally speak.
