The Central Alberta Sexual Assault Support Centre (CASASC) recently received a donation from Mastermind Toys Red Deer.
CASASC staff accepted the 32 Creatable World dolls from Mastermind Toys Store Manager Breanna Gilbertson on July 20.
The generous donation of dolls to CASASC will be used in the play therapy program. Play therapy is generally used with children ages four to 12. It provides a way for them to express their experiences and feelings through a natural, self-guided, self-healing process. Children’s experiences and knowledge are often communicated through play. In 2020, 38 per cent of CASASC’s counselling clients received play therapy.
