Escape Play Theme In Play Therapy
In this episode, we delve into the fifth theme within the safety play category: Escape Play. This particular theme marks a shift from the previous ones – containing, protection, danger, and rescue. Here, the focus is on a character, often the child themselves, managing to escape a hazardous situation without external rescue. I talk through some implications and potential meanings behind this form of play. Children might be demonstrating their need for self-rescue due to feelings of self-reliance or a lack of trust in others. Alternatively, it could signify their newfound sense of empowerment and belief in their own abilities.
