The Brave Play Kits

 

The Brave Play kit is a tool used in therapy as a form of expressive therapy. Very similar to sand tray without the sand, the Brave Play kit was developed by Ashley Garrett as a portable and less intimidating method of processing through experiential Play Therapy. Used with children, teens, and adults, Brave Play allows a person to reflect on their own life with opportunities to resolve conflicts, increase self-acceptance, and develop plans to remove obstacles in their life.
