Operant Conditioning was used to make the child understand the dolls and theme. Eleven sessions of 20 minutes duration was held. Through dramatic play using dolls and toys the child was made to understand cognitively about death. The child before treatment was depressed, angry and dull and believed that father was alive. But after the treatment accepted that her father is dead and will not return back. The child understood the concept of death and this healed the child
