Play therapy is a method through which specially trained therapists help children express what they find troubling and provide a safe space to heal. Put simply, Play Therapists use play—using puppets and miniature figurines, books and storytelling, arts & crafts, and other tools and activities—to help their young clients more effectively identify, communicate, and resolve their challenges.
Elaine Pizor was a dedicated member of the JFS Delaware team for multiple years. She was passionate about our mission to support vulnerable members of our community—her warmth, kindness, and special connection with children in particular is remembered and reflected in the gifts made in her honor to support our youngest clients.
JFS Delaware launched the Elaine S. Pizor Play Therapy Program in her memory in June of 2019.
