  Nondirective play therapy is a counseling method used to help children communicate their inner experiences through the use of toys and play. Nondirective play therapy, also called child-centered. Violet Oaklander: I was already working with emotionally disturbed children in the schools when I got interested in Gestalt therapy. One of my children became very ill and died. I was very depressed. My friend was going to Esalen Institute to be in a group for a week with Jim Simkin, so I went with him, and I was so impressed with what happened to me.

  Try these 5 suggestions below to prevent emotional dysregulation in children. Talk in a low, calm voice. If we start the activity out with a quiet, low, calm tone of voice children will model our behavior. Minimize your own movement. Stay in one place while you give your children directions so they can focus their attention on one location.   Then they introduced the idea of Non-Directive Play Therapy, a type of play therapy in which the child is given the opportunity to be fully autonomous in the session and choose whatever they want to do, while the therapist supports and engages them on the child’s terms – no questions, no demands, no direction.

  K. Gierok Last Modified Date: J Play therapy is a specialized treatment in which therapists watch kids playing and use what they observe to help them deal with emotional, mental, or behavioral issues. There are several different types of play therapy for children, including child-based, family-based, and group-based therapy. Non-directive play therapy, also called client-centred and unstructured play therapy, is guided by the notion that if given the chance to speak and play freely under optimal therapeutic conditions, troubled children and young people will be able to resolve their own problems and work toward their own solutions.
