How can play therapy be used in cases of divorce or loss of parent?

Play Therapy gives a child or adolescent the opportunity to discover and express feelings (such as grief, denial, depression, anger, guilt or a shaken sense of security and identity). Often these feelings which may accompany an experience of divorce may only be exhibited a few months, or even years after the divorce.

Parents learn what their child's or children's experiences of the divorce are and work with the therapist to develop ways to support their child through this painful process.
