Discussion 1 Responses - Week 8 Response to Britney Fallen I tend to agree with your sentiments that play therapy would be beneficial for Claudia as it is interactive and fun to a child. Play therapy entails an approach where the social worker utilizes items such as sandboxes and toys to help children express their emotions and thoughts (Taylor, 2009). It is an effective strategy because it makes children feel comfortable and safe since they might not even realize whether it is a therapy. Claudia’s trauma can be addressed using play therapy. The approach would create a comfortable environment and Claudia would find it easy to express her feelings and thoughts. It will also make her feel safe and care for by someone she can trust. Reference Taylor, E. R. (2009). Sandtray and solution-focused therapy. International Journal of Play Therapy, 18(1), 56–68.
