Practice Play Therapy With The Mystery Counseling Session

play therapyballoon activity

Play Therapy Activity Objective: Practice your creative play therapy skills by making one of the below objects from scrap materials you have around the home or office. Do not purchase any materials to make this play therapy mystery object.

The reason this is good play therapy practice is that when you get a play therapy client in need of some creative play therapy, you can make any object in a short amount of time.

A creative counselor and play therapist can whip something up in no time in order to benefit the play therapy client.

For my play therapy class I give each student an object to create in class with limited supplies. One of their midterm projects is to create (at home) a replica of what the client has a need to work with.

Below are some actual objects I ask my students to create. I cut this paper with the name of one mystery counseling objects on it. I then ask students to pull one piece of paper with the name of the object from a basket. They are to create a replica of whatever the object is on the paper.

In Play Therapy 101 my graduate play therapy students have several weeks to make the replica of the object. In real life creative counseling play therapy, you might have ten to twenty minutes to create the replica for the play therapy client.

Make sure you have plenty of scraps of paper, cardboard, art supplies, paint, glue, scissors, etc. on hand to use to create a replica of a time, place, or object for or with the play therapy client.

Below are just a few ideas of replicas you might have to recreate for a play therapy client.

My wish is that you will find the benefits of play therapy either as a trained professional play therapist, or play therapy client!

I truly hope that Creative Counseling 101 can open the creative doors for your practice with clients!
