Event Details

What is Theraplay? 

Theraplay is a short-term, therapist-guided dyadic psychotherapy that focuses onparent-child relationships. It:

  • Enhances attachment, self-esteem, and trust in others through joyful engagement
  • Is based on the natural patterns of interaction between parent and child
  • Focuses on four essential qualities found in parent-child relationships: structure, engagement, nurture and challenge
  • Creates an active and empathic connection between child and parents
  • Results in changed view of the self as worthy and loveable, and of relationships as positive

How Does Theraplay Differ from Other Kinds of Child Therapy?

  • It directly improves the parents or caregivers in change
  • It is active, interpersonal, and fun—not “talk therapy”
  • Progress can be made quickly
  • It focuses on strengthening the parent-child relationship
  • It focuses on the “here and now,” not what happened in the past
  • It can be used with young children or children with developmental delays
  • The “Theraplay way” flows easily from clinical setting to home
  • Theraplay is appropriate for all ages– infancy through adolescence

After Adoption

After Adoption finds adoptive families for those children who wait the longest in care - particularly those who are older, need to be placed with their brothers and sisters, or have a disability.

We then support those families as long as they need us, to help make those adoptions last.

We also provide support to adults adopted as children, and birth relatives of those adopted. We support all those whose lives have been affected by adoption.
