Annual Appeal 2022

Our mission is to build strong families and emotionally healthy children and adults through Theraplay® based treatment. The Theraplay Institute facilitates child and family emotional well-being by maintaining global standards for the practice of Theraplay through professional certification. We want as many mental health professionals to have access to our certification program as possible, which is why we’re offering a special scholarship open to mental health professionals who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). With this scholarship, supported by your donations, we can provide financial aid to BIPOC professionals as they begin the path towards Foundational Certification. As a Certified Theraplay Practitioner, professionals can implement Theraplay practice into sessions and better serve the children and families in their local communities. Our goal is to train as many mental health professionals in the Theraplay modality as possible so that we can provide diverse communities with the help and support they need.

Thank you for supporting BIPOC professionals with your donation to the Theraplay Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship Fund.

About Camp Theraplay

Children ages 5-10 are invited to join us at The Theraplay Clinic’s Camp Theraplay here at our clinic in Chicago in the summer of 2023! Our week-long day camp focuses on building a child’s social skills and expanding their capacity for emotional regulation. Each day includes Theraplay group activities, opportunities for movement and creative expression, and calming breaks designed to help a child downregulate.

Unlike other play group approaches, Theraplay learning takes place on a non-verbal level. Instead of talking about positive social behavior, the group leaders and children DO positive social interaction. Positive messages from the group interaction gradually become a part of the child’s internal sense of self.

Scholarships up to 100% of the cost will be offered to any family expressing financial need as long as funds are available, and the camp will be staffed at a one-to-one ratio so that each camper has a trusted adult available to help them navigate their way through the week. These are campers that need that extra support – many come from traumatic backgrounds and may be experiencing mental health and/or behavioral issues. Learn More

Will you help provide a child the chance to connect with their peers and internalize positive experiences that will build lifelong resiliency?
