Playtherapist Survey 2023

The Relationship between children’s emotional & mental well-being in the years following the covid pandemic.

Research Objectives

This report surmises the findings from 201 play therapists in Ireland. It describes the fallout from the COVID pandemic concerning the anxiety levels in the children they see in their own line of work. The data was collected through an online survey distributed via social media avenues. The report aimed to respond to the initial community meeting in Greystones, County Wicklow at the launch of “It Takes A Village Initiative” where 8 primary schools have come together to address the levels of anxiety witnessed in their schools.
