Thinking Outside the Box While Playing the Game: A Creative School-Based Approach to Working with Children and Adolescents
Martinez, Angel; Lasser, Jon
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v8 n1 p81-91 2013
The process of creating child-developed board games in a counseling setting may promote social, emotional, and behavioral development in children. Using this creative approach, counselors can actively work with children to address referred concerns and build skills that may generalize outside of counseling sessions. A description of the method is provided, followed by case examples to illustrate the application of the approach. Recommendations for future development of the child-developed board game technique are discussed.
