Play Continuum Frequently Asked
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.
