Mastery/Competence Play Theme In Play Therapy
In this episode, we’re diving into the category of mastery and competence play by looking at Mastery Theme play. This is where kids engage in activities that require a sense of accomplishment. I discuss how these types of play, like building, stacking, or balancing, often occur in the category of creative and artistic toys. We also explore the potential meanings behind a child’s engagement in mastery play, such as building self-esteem or proving capability, or even signaling readiness for therapy termination. I share insights into the significance of this play in a child’s therapy journey, emphasizing its role in fostering confidence and self-belief. Additionally, I share a heartwarming story from one of our therapists, highlighting the transformative impact of play therapy. In closing, I extend wishes for the Christmas and Hanukkah season and invite you to consider joining our upcoming child-centered training.
