Creativity and Solution-Focused Counseling for a Child with Chronic Illness
Frels, Rebecca K.; Leggett, Elsa Soto; Larocca, Patricia S.
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v4 n4 p308-319 2009
Children living with chronic illnesses deal with a unique set of challenges, specifically when living in a hospital setting. This counseling experience illustrates how a counselor intern used creativity and solution-focused counseling for goal-setting and exceptional outcomes with a 7-year-old client restricted to a hospital room. The authors describe specific applications of solution-focused techniques and imagination, spontaneity, and creative play to spark hope in the future for one young client.
