Play Continuum Frequently Asked Questions

Question 3: How does play work fit into the scheme of things?


The objectives of play work are care, support and in some cases educational - they are not therapeutic.

A play worker requires play skills not therapeutic play skills. However if a play worker trained in therapeutic play, as in Q2, she/he will make an added value contribution to a play scheme

A Play Therapist will usually have more skills and experience in using a play therapy 'tool-kit'.
