“After A Session” – Like any form of therapy, play therapy is confidential. It is essential that the child feel that his/her time with the therapist is private. For this reason, it is important to refrain from asking questions about the session (from the child or the therapist) after child therapy. It is best to allow the child to initiate conversations with you at his/her own time. It is important to remain in communication with your child’s therapist. Scheduled phone calls two times a month can be helpful to discuss overall themes, changes in behaviors, and strategies that might be helpful at home.
At Chico Creek Counseling, your child is important to us. Our goal is to listen effectively so that your child can communicate what is important to him/her. We offer our assistance to sort out hurts, problems, and any issues that may be of hindrance for your child.
