A Description of Filial Therapy
Filial therapy is a relatively recent application that uses play to help infants under the age of 3 as well as children up to the age of 14, in their mental and emotional development which for some reason, such as attachment issues, may be impaired.
The social objective is to prevent unfavourable infant experiences taking root to become deeper seated psychological problems.
