Have you ever wondered how Play Therapy works? Check out our On-the-Go Kits to see the power of therapeutic play in action. We love how the diverse set of tools, toys, and games in these kits encourage and allow children to voice difficult emotions and prompt healing through creatively confronting real-life conflicts.
