Cleaning Play Theme In Play Therapy
In this episode of the Play Therapy Podcast, I’m excited to explore the cleaning play theme. As a child-centered play therapist, I’ve observed various ways children engage in this type of play, from physically cleaning toys to tidying up the playroom. I break down the different meanings behind cleaning play, connecting it to feelings of anxiety, self-imposed pressure, or the need for control. Cleaning play offers a valuable window into a child’s emotional state and development. Emphasizing the importance of embracing imperfection, I discuss the transformation that occurs when a child can comfortably leave things a bit messy.
