PhilPlay celebrates 10 years!


Now and then, words fail us. Words are unable to fully capture our deepest sentiments and the complexity of our experience. Children, because of their still-developing language skills, may be particularly prone to this problematic situation where they cannot directly or clearly communicate what they feel.

But art, music and dance can just as effectively capture our thoughts and feelings, if not actually more so. The expressive arts has long been regarded as the language of the soul. Freed from the evaluative judgment of the analytical mind and the restrictions posed by words, the person is able to get in touch with his inner self in a raw, natural and authentic way. This frequently leads to more meaningful reflections and better insight.

Join us during our G.A. and experience how through some select activities, one modality of expressive arts (whether it’s art, music or dance) can facilitate self-knowledge, self-understanding and self-acceptance. Choose a workshop and allow yourself to be free, mindful and creative.

PhilPlay offered 22nd workshop on Basic Play Therapy 1


PhilPlay offered the 22nd workshop to a group 15 participants last June 13 to 15, 2019 at the Aerie of the University Dormitory of the Ateneo de Manila University, Quezon City.

Dr. Honey Carandang was on board to give the participants an introduction to the principles of child-directed play therapy. Dr. Washington Garcia, Ms. Marisa Marin, Ms. Uzi de Leon, and Tito Tom Batalla completed the roster of therapists who joined the participants to have fun, learn the modalities of play therapy, and how to inculcate the practice into their lives.

To the 22nd batch, congrats on completing the workshop and have fun playing for the rest of your lives.
