Introduction
 Dr. Miriam Galindo, a magna cum laude graduate of Chapman
University, serves children and their families with psychological
counseling services during divorce proceedings. Over the course
of her career, Dr. Miriam Galindo has become an expert in areas
of art therapy and child play therapy.
A number of qualitative and quantitative studies have
demonstrated the benefits and effectiveness of therapeutic play,
or child play therapy. The effectiveness of play therapy, which
involves playing with toys and other items to improve issues of
mental health, is widely accepted in most circles. In fact, a recent
study conducted by the United Kingdom chapter of Play Therapy
International showed that more than 70 percent of children who
engaged in play therapy went on to show positive changes.
Play Therapy
 Play therapy provides children and their families with
a number of benefits compared to other forms of
therapy. Capitalizing on the body’s natural inclination
towards healing, play therapists create a physically and
emotionally safe space in which the unconscious mind
can express itself. Furthermore, play therapy involves
no medication whatsoever. The average play session
can last up to 45 minutes in length, and a therapist
may conclude the session with a brief reflection on
what occurred during play.
