Directive vs Non-Directive Play Therapy
 
There are two major approaches to play therapy that most orientations can be categorised in to. These are either directive approaches where the therapist assumes responsibility for guidance and interpretation of the play interactions or non-directive approaches where the therapist will tend to leave the responsibility and direction of the therapeutic process to the child (Rasmussen & Cunnigham, 1995).
 
The main difference between directive and non-directive approaches is in the role that the therapist takes on in the process.
 
Psychoanalytic Play Therapy
 
Psychoanalytic play therapy is a directive approach where play is used to establish contact with the client, as a medium of observation, and sometimes, as something that promotes interpretive communication. Psychoanalytic therapy was originally founded and developed by Sigmund Freud in 1909 and it holds the views that "play" is a means by which the therapist and the child work toward resolution of the conflict and their common therapeutic goal (Ramirez, Flores-Torres, Kranz & Lund, 2005).
 
Anna Freud (1928, 1964, 1965), Margaret Lowenfeld (1935, 1970) and Melanie Klein (1961, 1987) also posited the theoretical premise for the use of play as a therapeutic tool and stipulated that the child's spontaneous play can be used as a substitute for the free association typically used within adult psychoanalysis (Geldard & Geldard, 2008).
 
Psychoanalytic play therapy goes beyond the immediate pain or difficulty that the child may experience through aiming to clear the way so that healthy psychosocial development can resume from where it had been halted by external trauma or invalid internal conflict. It is considered effective in helping children who have real and significant limitations come to terms with who they are by helping them develop more secure, adaptive, compensating, and self-accepting ways.
 
Psychoanalytic therapy involves the therapist in a role of participant and observer. The therapist allows the child to play and may at times participate with the child in play, but will also aim to shift the play on to more verbal interaction between them when necessary.
 
The psychoanalytic play therapist takes on the responsibility to gain an understanding and then communicate the meaning of the child's play in order to increase the child's self awareness of any pertinent conflict within themselves. Such insight is then believed to give rise to an adaptive resolution for the child as a natural response to altered meaning communicated by the therapist.
 
The therapist will often direct the conversation about key issues by asking open ended questions to the child. This allows the child to speak metaphorically rather than literally. This is important as the child may not be ready to articulate those thoughts into words or, due to their age, vocabulary may be quite limited making it difficult to articulate verbally many of the issues and difficulties being faced.
 
Jungian Play Therapy
 
Another approach to play therapy developed by Carl Jung in 1912 espoused the therapist as taking on an active role of facilitator with the child but not as a leader. Jung believed that the child's psyche would know where it needed to go, and therefore, it was the therapist's job to follow it there rather than direct it.
 
Jungian play therapy depends a great deal on the therapist to build trust with the child and sensitively discuss with the child about their play. It can be said that Jungian play therapy adopts a more non-directive approach.
 
Directive vs Non-Directive Approaches
 
One key concern over non-directive techniques is in the context of how young children will not necessarily have the cognitive skills and emotional capacity to repair and master traumatic experiences on their own (Rasmussen & Cunningham, 1995).
 
For example, abused children are unlikely to deal with issues underlying their sexually inappropriate behaviours unless the therapist raises these issues directly (Rasmussen & Cunningham, 1995).
 
As such, a more directive approach in these instances may be considered more appropriate. It has also been suggested that when the therapist places the responsibility for change completely on the child, they may give the child an additional burden which could encourage resistance in the child with the process.
 
As a consequence of these and other issues, there is an ongoing debate in the play therapy field over which approach is "better", non-directive or directive. The most common consensus is that there is not one right way to proceed in therapeutic work with children. In this sense, many approaches with varying degrees of directive and non-directive emphasis can work well in the right context.
 
For example, a therapist may choose to be quite directive with methods used in a session, and non directive with regard to the interpretation of the material which arises during a session, and then quite directive again in the issues of safety and best interests of the child.
 
Interestingly many therapists who call themselves non-directive or client-centred are often only non-directive in terms of what they do in a session. In this sense, while allowing the child to play how they want and with the toys they want, the therapist will   become more directive in their interpretation and analysis of the child's inner world and in the way they may choose to reflect such things back to the child (Rasmussen & Cunnigham, 1995).

Listening: The Key to Effective Communication
 
Communication breakdown in relationships has reached epidemic proportions. Couples are very busy. In most cases both partners work; they have children to raise; and family and friends to attend to.
 
They are always in a hurry. In the Rush that has become their life, they find that they haven't got the time to listen and to respond to each other. Before they know it they have stopped communicating and perhaps have even stopped relating.
 
If this problem is not addressed it may result in the demise of many relationships. The thing is that most couples are not aware that their communication has broken down. They accept as normal their brief contacts over a meal or as they rush off to work. With little time for sharing they establish a communication pattern based on a lack of listening as they pay lip service to what their partner is saying.

Common Thinking Errors
 
Below is a list of descriptions that Cognitive Behavioural counsellors can use to categorise automatic thoughts. These are descriptions of the common types of faulty thinking.
 
Recognising these patterns and adjusting your thinking is a great way to improve your day-to-day productivity and inner motivation. Can you recognise any of these types of faulty thinking?   
 
All-or-nothing thinking: You see things in black & white categories. If your performance falls short of perfect, you see yourself as a total failure.
 
Overgeneralization: You see a single negative event as a never-ending pattern of defeat.
 
Mental filter: You pick out a single negative detail and dwell on it exclusively so that your vision of all reality becomes darkened, like the drop of ink that discolours the entire beaker of water.
 
Disqualifying the positive: You reject positive experiences by insisting they "don't count" for some reason or other. You maintain a negative belief that is contradicted by your everyday experiences.
 
Jumping to conclusions: You make a negative interpretation even though there are no definite facts that convincingly support your conclusion.
 
Mind reading: You arbitrarily conclude that someone is reacting negatively to you and don't bother to check it out.
 
The Fortune Teller Error: You anticipate that things will turn out badly and feel convinced that your prediction is an already-established fact.
 
Magnification (catastrophizing) or minimization: You exaggerate the importance of things (such as your goof-up or someone else's achievement), or you inappropriately shrink things until they appear tiny (your own desirable qualities or the other fellow's imperfections). This is also called the "binocular trick".
 
Emotional reasoning: You assume that your negative emotions necessarily reflect the way things really are: "I feel it, therefore it must be true".
 
Should statements: You try to motivate yourself with shoulds and shouldn'ts, as if you had to be whipped and punished before you could be expected to do anything. "Musts" and "oughts" are also offenders. The emotional consequence is guilt. When you direct should statements toward others, you feel anger, frustration, and resentment.
 
Labelling and mislabelling: This is an extreme form of overgeneralization. Instead of describing your error, you attach a negative label to yourself: "I'm a loser". When someone else's behaviour rubs you the wrong way, you attach a negative label to him, "He's a damn louse". Mislabelling involves describing an event with language that is highly coloured and emotionally loaded.
 
Personalization: You see yourself as the cause of some negative external event for which, in fact, you were not primarily responsible.

Values and Conflict Resolution
 
Every person has distinctive viewpoints that are equally valid (from where they stand) as the other party involved in the conflict. Each person's viewpoint makes a contribution to the whole and requires consideration and respect in order to form a complete solution.
 
This wider view can open up the communication transaction possibilities. It may require one party to change their mind chatter that says: "For me to be right, others must be wrong" (Alexelrod, 1984).
 
To apply conflict resolution skills, individuals need to consider how the problem or the relationship will look over a substantial period of time. Looking at the conflict or problem in question in terms of a longer timeframe can help individuals become more realistic about the consequences of the conflict as well as exploring options to resolve the conflict (Alexelrod, 1984).

7 Ways to Improve Intimacy in Your Relationship
 
Good relationships don't just happen. Many people have the attitude that, "If I have to work at it, then it can't be the right relationship". This is not a true statement, any more than it's true that you don't have to work at good physical health through exercise, eating well, and stress reduction.
 
There are choices you can make that will not only improve your relationship, but can turn a failing relationship into a successful one.
