Several difficult to provide children with the means to explore the real life experience and expression of feelings. In the classic version nondirective psychocorrection described G.L.Lendretom, this requires a games room and a properly chosen toys: toys from real life (cars, boats, dolls, etc.), toys for acting out aggression (guns, knives, rubber etc.), toys for creative expression (sand, water, cubes). However, the G.L.Lendret for the opportunity to use a portable “game room”, located inside a suitcase. We believe, based on my experience, that school is the most appropriate interim solution, “playroom”, placed on the table. When this is placed on the table 3 trays measuring approximately 30×40 cm with water, sand, with small toys. Naturally, the selection of toys made in accordance with the requirements of the correction in the game.
Thus, the following logic can be traced within each correctional training.
The physical activity of the child in the beginning of the session is the maximum, in the end – the minimum that allows the child as quickly join the class and out of it – do other things, go in a group or in class.
Prescriptive lead in the first part gradually gives way to a complete disappearance of the directivity in the end.
A gradual expansion of feelings expressed by the child, the deepening problems are worked to the last part.
These are some examples of techniques of individual work, was the most effective.
The technique of “Let’s play a little”
Description of technology. This technique can be used only after the establishment of sufficient trust between a child and an adult. Facilitator asks the child to play in infants. The child lies down on the mattress, trying to reproduce the chaotic movements of the arms and legs, baby, helping him lead, swinging his arms and legs. If there is an assistant, then an adult swings his feet, the other – hand. If you allow the weight of the baby, the leading picks him up and carries the room (the same is possible with an assistant), saying that her mother loves her child.
Then the child is a little “growing up” and begins to “learn to get up.” On the mattress, he kneels, holding hands at the table, trying to get up, leading several times “helps him to” fall. Then the child is still “grows”, he already knows how to say “no”, he lies down on the mattress, heels hit on it (the leading help him beat with great force), shouting “no, no, no.”
The child “grows up” yet. He already knows how to fight. Lead and child are fighting pillows, thus leading wondered who and why is fighting a child.
Indications for use of technology. This technique is applicable if the child tries to close on the lead and do not allow ourselves to realize and accept your anger towards loved ones and significant matters of adults: parents, brothers, sisters. In addition, it can be used to work with children who have a deep fear of falling, sometimes outwardly manifested.
Examples of applications. Nikita, 8 years old, suffers deeply from the fact that after the divorce, the parents can not divide him and his brother. At the stage of “whipping” pillows, he said that thrashes first brother, “because he was tired of it,” then my mother, “because she does not love him,” then my father, “because he left us.”
Sasha, 10 years old, complains that writes very slowly, not keeping up with the class, but in life it is usually a very active boy, loves to run, jump. True, he too often falls and is injured. In conversation, it turns out that he writes slowly, for very afraid to make a mistake (our hypothesis – the fall).
When performing this technique on the stage of the “up and down” Sasha categorically refused to fall, strained his knees, shouting, “I’m not going to fall.” In the end, it fell to the side of the mattress and a little hit his head on a chair, that is reproduced for him the real life situation.
