From the Author:

This picture book is intended to reduce the fears of a child visiting a therapist for the first time. It will also help parents understand the underlined physiological effect of what a therapist is trying to accomplish with their child. Children value theselves based on the reflection of themselves through the way adults interact with them. In school and at home adults unintentionally block children's expressions. They are constantly being told what to say and do. Many children suppress their feelings. The playroom gives them a safe place to express themselves without being judged. The toys used in play therapy are symbolic of the child's words or tools for expression. The toys facilitate the child's own expression, imagination, and play themes. Children express themsleves better with the toys and feel less threatened than when asked to "talk" verbally about their problems. We have written this book using specific statements to illustrate how the communication between the therapist and child empowers the child.
