Beth Hughes on Play Bus

Ivy.... A Play Therapy Bus

People often ask me, “How in the world did you come up with the idea to create a mobile play therapy bus?” Beth Hughes on the Play Therapy Training Bus

My first thought is if you are asking this question, you have probably never lived in southern West Virginia. “Ivy” was born out of necessity. We have far too many young children needing mental health intervention and far too few Registered Play Therapists in our beautiful state. Access to care is a tremendous obstacle to children in need. Clinicians often told me they were seeing traumatized children in their homes - sometimes the very home where the child’s trauma took place. In-home services were mandated with little thought about the problems this causes for the child. So I found this old Ford 15 passenger bus, had her transformed into what I use today to treat children and train therapists in Play Therapy.

“Ivy” is named in honor of a girl (some called “special needs”) who was my tent mate at a summer camp in 1969. She changed my life course.
