Using Play Therapy
Miniatures In Play Therapy

Identifying Personality Parts in Play Therapy

Personality Parts (Beginning Use with Miniatures or Clip Art)

*The play therapist should have a collection of miniatures for the play therapy client to use or the use of a computer that can print out some clip art the client has chosen in order to accurately represent each emotion or feeling.

The play therapy client will choose miniatures that represent emotions they are experiencing.

Materials for Play Therapy Activity:

Personality Parts Worksheet below Assorted Miniatures or Clip Art of Choice

Directions for Play Therapy Activity:

1. Ask the play therapy client to pick one or more words from the Suggested Emotion list below.

2. The play therapy client will need to find miniatures that represent theses chosen emotions. This may take one or more sessions. The therapist should have an assortment of miniatures available when doing this activity with a play therapy client.

If the play therapy client does not find a miniature that represents the word they can draw one or take extra time outside of the session to look for the perfect miniature to represent the word.

3. After the play therapy client has chosen the “emotional words” and the miniatures to represent each word fill out the “Personality Parts Worksheet “below.

4. The play therapist can translate each miniature from the Symbols Dictionary to share with the play therapy client when they meet again. Extension: Use the “Inner World” activity located in the Creative Psychotherapy book.
