“Thank you very much for all the assistance Catholic Charities Atlanta has given me. A year ago I was not in a good place, still trying to deal with the loss of my husband after 36 years of marriage. Now, after some counseling sessions, I am joyful and at peace once again and looking forward to my future.” -Ruth from Chamblee, Ga.

Play Therapy for Children
Play is a child’s way of communicating, just as adults use words. Play Therapy encourages an open and voluntary communication, reducing stress and building trust. Children learn to regulate their emotions as their self-esteem is elevated. This open communication fosters learning while promoting acceptable behavior and creative problem-solving. Play Therapy is a creative and healthy way to foster critical development in your child. Through play, children learn to:
- express feelings in a healthy way
- modify behavior
- develop problem-solving skills
- improve self-esteem
- relate to others in a healthy way
