    “Play is a crucial way in which children can open their minds, strengthen their brains, and create spontaneous connections with others without judgement or fear. Theraplay is a time-tested approach that supports children's healthy development of resilience and well-being. Bravo for decades of nurturing children's lives!"

    "Theraplay is an efficient mode of therapy. Theraplay seamlessly incorporates within a play environment several elements that are shared with models of psychotherapy. From a Polyvagal perspective Theraplay respects the biobehavior state of the child, applies therapist initiated social engagement strategies to trigger a state of safety in the child, and promotes synchronous reciprocal interactions as a neural exercise that increases social flexibility and improves emotion regulation."

    Trauma-Focused Theraplay, Eliana Gil, Ph.D.Eliana Gil, Ph.D. 

    "I cannot say enough about Theraplay.  You have to experience it.  You have to watch what happens to your clients when applied carefully and purposefully.  

    As an integrated clinician, I am eternally grateful for this wonderful technique, deceptively simple, amazingly accessible, and tested over decades with thousands of parent-child dyads.  Its application is without bounds, and my purpose here is to encourage clinicians to think about Theraplay as a therapy of choice for trauma and its subsequent clinical issues."

    Dan Hughes, Ph.D.Dan Hughes Headshot Recent1

    "I highly recommend Theraplay. Based on principles of attachment, Theraplay enables parents and their children—of all ages-- to again experience reciprocal joy and interests, cooperation and delight. This provides them with safety and a sense of closeness which creates a context where ongoing conflicts and worrisome behaviors are likely to decrease."
