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.
