Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Psychologie - Entwicklungspsychologie, Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Universität Greifswald, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: „Angst ist ein Gefühlszustand, der gekennzeichnet ist durch negative Emotionen und körperliche Symptome von Anspannung. Der Begriff Angst leitet sich von dem lateinischen Wort „anxius“ ab und definiert einen Zustand von Erregung und Belastung.“ (ESSAU, Cecilia A., 2003) In der Wissenschaft wird die Angst in ihrer Ursache und Wirkung, sowohl gegenwärtig als auch zukunftsorientiert als eine komplexe Erfahrung verstanden. Sie äußert sich körperlich, kognitiv und im Verhalten. Angststörungen bei Kindern und Jugendlichen sind ernstzunehmende Störungen. Es gibt unterschiedliche Risikofaktoren auf der familiären Ebene, der kognitiven Ebene und im Bereich unterschiedlicher Lebensereignisse. Mit Lebensereignissen sind Augenblicke gemeint, in denen das Kind oder der Jugendliche eine extreme negative Erfahrung gemacht hat. Aufgrund dieser unterschiedlichsten Risikofaktoren gilt es als Lehrer, eine Sensibilität für Symptome möglicher Angstreaktionen zu entwickeln. Kinder werden ihre Gefühle je nach Alter direkt oder indirekt beschreiben können. In jedem Fall gilt es, Beobachtungen mit den Eltern bzw. anderen Lehrern abzugleichen und eventuell einen Therapeuten zur Behandlung aufzusuchen. Durch die Klassifikationsmöglichkeiten nach DSM-III und ICD-10 ist es heute möglich, nach einer genauen Diagnose und einer dazu passenden Behandlung weitere Folgen und eine Verfestigung der jeweiligen Angststörung zu verhindern.

Play therapy interventions are critical elements of providing responsive services within the context of comprehensive school counseling programs. However, many school counselors are not trained in the use of play therapy techniques during their graduate training programs as Play Therapy is not a required course based on standards set by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Education Programs (CACREP) (2009). Indeed, while there are over 400 school counseling programs in the U. S., there are only 11 certified play therapy training centers. Even more critically, school counselors may not know which play therapy approaches and interventions are evidenced based for specific childhood concerns (e. g., selective mutism, social skills deficits, parent deployment). Play therapy is a structured, theoreticallybased approach to counseling that builds on the normal communicative and learning processes of children as they may not have developed the complexities of language to accurately express their concerns (Carmichael, 2006; Gil, 1991; Landreth, 2002; O'Connor & Schaefer, 1983). Further, children who are most in crisis may be the ones who need play concepts integrated in counseling; yet, many school counselors are unprepared to provide these vital resources. The focus of this book is on various play techniques and the application of various play therapy theories (i. e., Child Centered Play Therapy, Solution Focused Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Play Therapy) within comprehensive school counseling programs, addressing various childhood concerns, prevention and intervention. Each chapter offers vignettes, a literature review of a specific childhood concern (e.g., homelessness, separation anxiety), pragmatic interventions for the school environment, and a case study to demonstrate application of techniques.
