3 Directive or Cognitive-Behavioral Play/Art Therapy Interventions for Children
1. “Jenga” CBPT game: when the child removes a piece of the puzzle, the child verbalizes a situation at home or school where they acted out in anger. The child and the counselor talk out an alternative way to handle the situation that results in healthy emotions instead of acting out on anger.
Hall et al. (2002) note that at the close of the activity, the counselor should reiterate how talking about feelings can help find healthy ways to deal with anger and release it safely (p. 517).
3 Different Group Play/Art Therapy Interventions for Children
1. “Family Portrait”; the child is given crayons, markers, etc., and encouraged to draw a picture of the family. The drawing may reveal who the child feels the closest, the dominant figure within the home, anger issues, sexual trauma, physical abuse, etc.
Kool and Lawver (2010) state that creative-expression toys such as crayons, scissors, and art materials give the child various ways to express emotions and allow the child to be messy while in a safe environment (p. 22).
3 Different Family Play/Art Therapy Interventions for Children
1. “Matchbox Cars”; with the family present, the child is instructed to choose a Matchbox car representing different family members. This activity can create insight into how the child feels about certain family members, such as safety, fear, and trauma (i.e., a police car would represent a family member who has had brushes with the law that may have been traumatic).
According to Kool and Lawver (2010), opportunities for interpretation will surface during play. Identifying a correct interpretation can be significant in connecting the activity information to outside behaviors (p. 22).
