Ask an adult what play therapy is and you may get a quizzical look. It’s no surprise then that children going into play therapy might need some help understanding it. Rebeca Chow, MA, LPC, LCPC, RPT/S, MNU play therapy program coordinator, has created the first interactive iPad application book for just that purpose. “Play Therapy Book” provides an introduction to the way therapists work with young clients.
Chow says she developed the app because the youngest clients needed a simple way to learn about play therapy.
