Just as negative judgment is inappropriate when one is trying to create a permissive atmosphere, so too is approval, praise, or encouragement. All judgment, be it positive or negative, sends a message to a child about the therapist’s expectations with regard to the child’s play. For example, if a child is throwing bean bags at the bean bag board, continues to fail to get a bean bag through one of the holes, and seems frustrated, it would be inappropriate to say, “You’re trying hard. ” The subtle message sent by the play therapist is that the child should continue the activity until he or she succeeds.

It does not matter if the child is overly dependent, fearful, boisterous, outspoken, anxious, aggressive, or withdrawn. The CCPT therapist has confidence in all children’s ability to figure out what they need to resolve their emotional and behavioral difficulties and to learn to trust and accept themselves.

This in turn allows children to develop their own sense of trust in self, self-­acceptance, and self-­responsibility.

With many children with emotional and behavioral problems, this is a much slower process, because the children’s prior experience with adults is that they cannot express themselves and feel safe.
