Telehealth Activity: Choose Your Own Adventure

I love creative interventions for therapy! One of my favorite things about telehealth is that it opens us up to even more options if we just think about things a different way.

I was recently sent a link to this tutorial on how to create Choose Your Own Adventure stories using Google slides. It is comprehensive and user-friendly.

The tutorial was created for teachers, but the activity is easily tailored to therapy interventions depending on your approach, goals, or orientation.

Behavioral therapy? Have kids create a story of a typical day, and go through decisions they make with possible consequences for different choices. (You could even get cognitive here and explore what distortions come up in the story.)

Narrative therapy? Kids can tell their story while exploring how things could have been different.

Or you can take a non-directive approach and see what fun and creative ideas the child comes up with.

What kinds of interventions do you use to bring out your clients’ creativity?
