Abstract Share this page

Children affected by psychosis often endure unresolved mental health and psychosocial disturbances that impede social, academic, and behavioral functioning (Algon, Yi, Calkins, Kohler, & Borgmann-Winter, 2012). This article provides clinicians with a discussion of play therapy and empirically informed techniques to improve treatment outcomes for children diagnosed with psychosis. The literature review comprises various aspects of this unique pediatric population, including prevalence, assessment/evaluation, symptoms, and psychosocial treatment. Additionally, an integrative play therapy approach is highlighted, comprising (a) family interventions (McFarlane, Dixon, Lukens, & Lucksted, 2003), (b) psychosocial approaches (Green & Drewes, 2013; Stewart & Green, 2015), and (c) school-based support (Flanagan, Allen, & Henry, 2010). The article concludes with a case study depicting the psychological challenges a typical child with psychosis encounters and the associated treatment options available to play therapy practitioners from an integrative standpoint.
