“I believe a bop-bag is a critical element for children in play therapy. As most believe, the bop-bag does communicate “In here, you can act out. Punch me, hit me, I’ll come back for more.” It allows the child to express anger in an appropriate manner and develop mastery. For example, I’ve had many sexually abused children become re-empowered. I also have children go on to use the bop-bag as a horse, a friendly figure, a mountain to climb, a creative option for nurturing and soothing behavior. A bop-bag meets those requirements for any play therapy room item: open to the creativity of the child. It can become many words for them to use.”
