Coming from a person-centered approach, the use of character creation can be meaningful in many ways to clients at various stages of their lives. Self-identity, self-empowerment, and self-acceptance can all be strengthened by establishing a character that fits into a fictional narrative. This course will examine how integrating character creation into game-therapy, role-play, and art therapy can foster therapeutic growth.
