Developed over 50 years ago and practiced worldwide, Theraplay was developed for professionals working to support healthy attachment between child and caregiver. A strong attachment between the child and the significant adults in their life has long been considered the basis of good mental health throughout life as well as the pillar of resilience in the face of adversity. Modern brain research and the field of neuroscience have shown that attachment is how children come to understand, trust and thrive in their world. Theraplay uses practitioner guidance to create playful and caring child-adult interactions that promote joyful shared experiences. The practice has evidence-based status and is accepted by the US Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration for inclusion in the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices.
