Play Therapy on FOX Business

Saturday, July 8th at 5pm (EST), an episode of Innovations with Ed Begley, Jr on FOX Business aired a 6-minute special on APT and the field of play therapy!

The information-based series hosted by award winning actor Ed Begley Jr. has the potential to educate 85 million people on the value of play therapy. “Research suggests Play Therapy is an effective mental health approach, regardless of age, gender, or the nature of the problem, and works best when a parent, family member, or caretaker is actively involved in the treatment process,” said Michele Nehls, Senior Producer for the Innovations TV series. “We look forward to exploring this exciting topic.”
