Play Therapy
Communicating with children in the language they speak…

Play is known to relieve feelings of stress and boredom, create positive connections with others, stimulate creative thinking, and regulate emotions – allowing children to practice skills they need to thrive. Through play therapy, children learn to communicate with others, express themselves, modify their behavior, and develop problem-solving skills.

The Dr. Edward Rosof Play Therapy Room offers a safe, welcoming space where JFCS counselors can build rapport and establish trust with young clients through play. The fun and nurturing environment facilitates open communication and allows our staff to better understand the unique issues each child may be facing. While play therapy can benefit people of all ages, it is especially helpful for children ages 3 through 12 who are struggling with a variety of issues – including anxiety, depression, bullying, divorce, or grief.
