Theraplay® – Using the Principles of Theraplay®

Theraplay provided by Jogo Behaviour Support

Theraplay® is a child and family therapy for building and enhancing attachment, self-esteem, trust in others, and joyful engagement.

What is Theraplay?

Theraplay® is a child and family therapy designed to build and enhance attachment, self-esteem, trust in others and joyful engagement. Rooted in the natural patterns of playful and healthy interactions between parents and children, Theraplay® is a personal, physical and enjoyable experience that brings families closer together. It focuses on four crucial qualities found in parent-child relationships: Structure, Engagement, Nurture and Challenge.

Theraplay® sessions create an active, emotional connection between the child and parent or caregiver, leading to a transformed self-perception as worthy and lovable and a positive view of relationships as rewarding and fulfilling. Unlike traditional child therapy, the Theraplay® process is distinctive. Here, the therapist takes the lead, orchestrating activities and setting the session's pace, always considering the child's needs. Whenever possible, parents or other significant caregivers are encouraged to participate and continue therapeutic activities at home, making Theraplay® an inclusive and family-centred approach.

Join us on this remarkable journey of building stronger connections, nurturing self-esteem and fostering trust within your family. Together, we'll create a brighter, more connected future for you and your loved ones through Theraplay®.
