Contraindica Tions

Therapeutic play reading can be used to great benefit with groups that have ample time to spend together. Although there seem to be very few contraindications to this intervention, the most salient is in its preparation in relation to the group members as a whole. For example, it does require that group members have the ability to read efficiently. Some group members may need enlarged print. If there are one or two illiterate group members, or others who may have trouble reading for any reason, these folks may prefer to listen. If these group members do not mind being prompted by staff, they may wish to take a role in spite of their deficit. The group leader should try to gage whether assigning roles to those who may struggle with the reading will cause them humiliation as this is to be avoided.
