Research has found Play to be an effective therapeutic medium for children in difficult and challenging circumstances such as family changes, separation and divorce,  new schools, chronic illness and even death and dying. It is a natural means for children to work out difficulties they might face such as in making friends, dealing with excessive anger, fear, sadness, worry & shyness.  Play also helps in dealing with issues emerging from aggression & acting out;  school difficulties; abuse & neglect; social adjustment; sleeping and eating difficulties; poor self concept & low self esteem; trauma; grief & loss; hospitalization; and identity.”Play is the highest expression of human development in childhood, for it alone is the free expression of what is in the child’s soul” – Fredrich Frobel
