Free Play Therapy Game Idea: A Week In My Life

I spend a week working on this play therapy game assignment and as I experienced different feelings I added another feeling and miniature to the sheet. My feeling, corresponding miniatures, and the specific situations follow.

Positive Feelings:
During this week I took my comprehensive exam. This exam had so much meaning to me because it meant the assessment of my graduate career, the completion of a goal I have had for 17 years, and a quantitative analysis of my skills as a counselor. After completing the exam I felt: happy, peaceful, joyous, and relaxed.

I have also been thinking about life after graduation. Although I have received some discouraging information regarding pay, I still felt: optimistic, excited, hopeful, inspired, independent, motivated, aware, and confident.

Negative Feelings:
I had a situation where I had to interact with 3 people. In the past, their behavior was quite negative so I was not looking forward to having to working with them again. Therefore prior to working with them on this new project I felt: uncertain, annoyed, discouraged, and drained.

After reading their emails and speaking with them, they did not respond as they did in the past so I felt sorry for my preconceived notions. During this week I also learned the true nature of someone I trusted and I felt: disappointed, suspicious, shocked, and cautious.

Suspicious-green Apatosaurus
Cautious- German shepherd
Drained- lavender stegosaurus
Discouraged- blue tyrannosaurus rex
