Abstract

ABSTRACT

Our practice of play therapy has employed a model which we call “The Color-Emotive Brain.” This model is described, followed by summaries of two case studies in which the model was employed. Early studies using the Color-Emotive Brain model (with a total of 25 children) have found it to be useful in play therapy with populations ranging from the severely behaviorally disturbed to the very moderately impaired, and with inpatient and outpatient populations, from ages three through ten. The model is effective in (a) allowing children to visualize their level of emotional disclosure, (b) aiding in moving from one level of emotional disclosure to a deeper level, and (c) providing children with increased motivation for treatment, for example, to reach successive goals.
