What is the LEGO® Serious Play® methodology Therapy?

Is a form of play-based therapy which is a non-directive form of evidence-based counselling for children and adolescents and works on developing the child’s awareness and understanding around their own personal experiences, thoughts, and feelings. Being non-directive means we don’t try to ‘guess’ what therapeutic activity will be most helpful. Instead, we let each child or young person guide the process, through their play and ways of interacting, to guide and inform the exact source of their issue. The LEGO® Serious Play® methodology Therapy also is a child-led, peer-based intervention using LEGO construction play to communicate their feelings and emotions that might go unexpressed or transferred somewhere else.

LEGO® Serious Play® methodology Therapy can also be used to connect with peers. to foster skills in collaboration and interaction, particularly useful for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Initially discovered by psychologist Daniel LeGoff, LEGO® Serious Play® methodology Therapy teaches turn-taking, sharing, listening, conversation, teamwork, shared attention, and problem-solving. While primarily for children and adolescents, some adults also use LEGO for relaxation and mindfulness. This therapy is effective as it taps into the natural interests of children and adults with ASD, offering a predictable and systematic play environment that is conducive to learning and development.

LEGO® Serious Play® methodology Therapy becomes the bridge between the emotion freedom and the emotional responsibility, supporting emotional self regulation.
