HumanInsight Play Therapy via Telemedicine in a Child with Sudden-onset Emotional Disorder During the COVID-19 Lockdown Period: A Case Report
Innov Clin Neurosci. 2022 Oct-Dec;19(10-12):40-42.
The mental health of children and adolescents has been significantly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and recent data suggests there had been an upsurge of psychiatric morbidity in this subgroup of population. Nonpharmacological behavioral intervention in the form of play therapy has been regarded as one of the best treatment strategies in children with emotional disorders. During lockdown, we attempted a play therapy via telemedicine. In this case report, we describe the case of a four-year-old girl who had sudden-onset behavioral problems following an unplanned hair cut during the lockdown, which was managed with teleplay therapy.
