Using Superheroes and Villains in Counseling and Play Therapy: A Guide for Mental Health Professionals

Jun 18, 2020 10:00am ‐ Jun 18, 2020 10:00am

Credits: None available.

In updating and revising his previous publication of the book, Using Superheroes in Counseling and Play Therapy (Rubin, 2006) Lawrence Rubin has provided us with a smashing edition through the inclusion of supervillains and their role in our work in the playroom. Drawing on the proliferation of superheroes and villains in pop culture, from the power of the images in film, small screen, and graphic media, these chapters also have the discussion of the experience of these character’s back stories to flesh out the antecedents of their behaviors, much like those of our clients.

Dr. Rubin once again pulled together a super team of clinicians, researchers, counselors, and play therapists to share their clinical and personal experiences with superheroes in healing work. Divided into five sections: Superheroes Super Theories, Treating Specific Disorders, Superhero Teams, Villains as Helpers, and Superheroes at the Intersection; the book provides much to ponder in utilizing the Superhero/Villain metaphor in our clinical work. From families as Superhero Teams to creating one’s own super hero, the diverse chapters give insight and suggestion into expanding our therapeutic repertoire in this new and improved super book.

Learning Objectives:
  • Describe and utilize superheroes and super villains in the context of different theoretical orientations.
  • List four different interventions that use the Superhero Team concept in their work with children and families.
  • Analyze how villains and their back stories can inform our understanding of children, improving our implementation within the therapeutic powers of play.
