24/08/21 – Nursery World talks about Coronation Street episode

The play therapy workforce have spoken out against comments made during an episode of Coronation Street that ‘play therapy is touchy, feely rubbish’.

Helen Clark, spokesperson for the Child Mental Health Charter campaign, added, ‘This popular soap has shown itself to be out of touch with life today.

Ms Clark went on to say that it is ‘worrying’ the Government has not included play therapy within its Covid recovery programme for primary school children.
