WHAT IS PLAY THERAPY AND DANCE/MOVEMENT THERAPY?
Dance/Movement Therapy is perfectly suited for children to work through behavioral and emotional issues because they do their “talking” through non-verbal movement. Dance/movement therapy uses many different kinds of movement: body language, posture, gestures, facial expressions, breathing, body and spatial movement, and forms of dance- motor games, movement warm-ups, mirroring, and relaxation. Play Therapy also uses the non-verbal “tools” of children such as games, sand tray play, balloons, role-playing, puppets, art, balls, dress-up, lincoln logs, building blocks, and dollhouses to help children work through behavioral and emotional issues. Sheila Gilstein utilizes a combination of both play and dance/movement therapy to help children with ADHD, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Selective Mutism, and Anxiety.She is a Board Certified- Dance/Movement Therapist and Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor, allowing her to both provide treatment and supervise other dance/movement therapists and play therapists.
