Building Personal Play Therapy Miniature Worlds with Creative Counseling 101.com
Building play therapy miniature personal worlds with your play therapy client is not only creative, but it is a valuable tool to reach the unconscious part of the play therapy client's psyche.
This is an example of a play therapy miniature world "My Private Island". She the link below for directions.
Play therapy clients can build a personal play therapy miniature world in the sand tray, with the doll house, mandala, art counseling, and puppet theater.
They can also create a personal play therapy miniature world using other materials such as a paper plate, a milk carton, a triarama, or theater. See the below links for more information on how to build play therapy miniature worlds.
The Creative Counselor knows no limits when it comes to different ways to help the client create a play therapy miniature world.
The play therapy miniature worlds can be made with miniatures and / or clip art. When using these miniature worlds you are taking the play therapy client out of the sand tray and making an actual play therapy world.
Using different environments for the play therapy personal miniature world encourages the play therapy client to bring out different parts of the psyche, and view their personal world from a different perspective.
Try using these techniques below to help your play therapy client create their own personal play therapy miniature world. These worlds can be taken home (unlike the sand tray, doll house, or puppet theater) and the client can revisit the world at a later date.
I have a collection of inexpensive plastic miniatures that I allow my clients to use for these play therapy miniature worlds. Clip art is also a handy tool to use for the miniature worlds.
Play therapy clients can create these worlds on paper plates, triaramas, pop-up books, cereal boxes, games, or even a cut out milk carton.
Have fun with your play therapy clients when they create these unique play therapy worlds in therapy sessions, or in the school counseling session.
