Wellness and Rehabilitation Institute

Play Therapy Center for Children and Families

Play is a perfect way to engage children in therapy. It is developmentally appropriate, allows children to express both comfortable and uncomfortable thoughts and emotions, and gives the therapist valuable insights into the child’s world.

Play therapy uses the therapeutic powers of play to help clients prevent or resolve psychosocial difficulties and achieve optimal growth and development. One of only 18 approved centers for play therapy education in the country, Nazareth’s Play Therapy Center brings play therapy services, education, training, and research to the Rochester community and beyond.
