Miniatures
Miniatures Tell the client and the therapist a lot about family dynamics, relationship conflict, and who is close just by choosing a miniature for each family member and placing them on a table.
Story 1
The Client identifies herself as Kanga, baby brother as Roo, two sisters, and an aunt as three girls to the right of her, mother as the witch, and dad as the dragon. Notice the spacing of the parents. The client is probably the caretaker of the brother and the buffer between the parents and the three girl miniatures.
Story 2

Puppets
Puppets are used in individual, family, and group sessions to engage client to create a story. Puppets are used to allow children to explore their issue and come up with their own solution. Children will project their feeling and thoughts into their stores. Children are able to feel Sade while expressing themselves.
