Although play therapy is a product of western society, the tenets of play therapy are universal since children of all cultures play and express them-selves actively through their play.

This chapter explores some cultural differences and the modification of some play therapy techniques and procedures, which may be necessary to ensure the effectiveness of play therapy with Chinese children.
