First student reply
Cognitive behavioral therapy works to change cognitive distortions and self-defeating behaviors. This therapy helps individuals learn to think before they speak or do something. It helps individuals the most because it allows them to make better decisions when put in bad/awkward situations.
second student reply
Play Therapy is an important type of therapy for kids because they are able to use dolls and toys to act out their hopes, fantasies, and traumas. This type of therapy is also used to make diagnosis by observing how the child interacts with the toys to understand the child’s disturbed behavior. I think its more helpful for both ends. The observer could understand the role play more and the kids can actually act out scenarios they have been through and I think they may be more comfortable doing it that way
