Merriam-Webster (n.d.) defines Play Therapy as, “psychotherapy in which a child is encouraged to reveal feelings and conflicts in play rather than by verbalization.” It is a therapy where through the use of toys and games and other forms of play, a child communicates much like in verbal therapy for adults.

Databases are a great place to search for individual articles from newspapers, magazines, and academic journals.
While many news and magazine articles may also be found with an internet search engine, our subscription databases can provide you with access to older articles that are not available online and other pay-per-view materials, plus additional options to refine your search. As far as scholarly articles go, databases should be your first stop! Most scholarly literature is not freely available.
