Dynamic Play Therapy is an intervention style which encourages parents and children to engage in mutual expressive activities.
2. CLEARINGHOUSE ON ELEMENTARY AND EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION
Children communicate through play (Axline, 1969; Landreth, 2002). It is their innate language. By teaching parents the language of play, and how to use play therapeutically, the communication gap between parent and child can be closed.

The Association for Play Therapy offers these best practices as guidelines for the instruction, supervision,
and practice of play therapy.
