The Neuroscience behind the method

The Play of Life has been applied globally by professionals in human services and for self-help for over 30 years. But how does it differ from all other methods, therapies and programs? Well, it not only doesn't take away from other tools but it adds to them, you could say it's model agnostic. 

Watch this short animated video to see a short snapshot of the neuroscience behind the method or read the article linked below.  

How it helps

A few human pain points the Play of Life helps to address: 

1. Difficulty in verbal expression: It recognises that it can be challenging to convey and articulate complex emotions and experiences through traditional verbal communication. By providing a visual and immersive experience, it offers an alternative avenue for self-expression and understanding.

2. Communication barriers in coaching or therapy: Many individuals struggle to effectively communicate their thoughts, feelings, and experiences in coaching or therapy sessions. The Play of Life bypasses these barriers by offering a tangible and interactive tool that helps clients explore and understand their stories more comprehensively.

3. Cognitive biases and self-justification: The human brain has a tendency to create justifications and biases to protect us from pain, failure, or the unknown. These cognitive biases often hinder personal growth and impede progress. The Play of Life helps individuals recognise and break free from these biases by visually representing their hidden narratives, enabling them to gain fresh insights and perspectives.

4. Lack of self-awareness and understanding of impact: Individuals and groups may struggle to fully comprehend the effects of their actions and choices on themselves and others. The Play of Life allows clients to see the direct and indirect consequences of their behaviour, fostering self-awareness and promoting empathy towards others.

5. Designing a better life: Many individuals desire positive change and a better quality of life but may lack clarity or guidance on how to achieve it. The Play of Life empowers clients to actively design and create the life they aspire to, providing a structured framework for personal growth and transformation.

By addressing these pain points, The Play of Life offers individuals and groups a unique and powerful approach to self-discovery, communication, and personal development.

Digital apps

Until now, the Play of Life method has exclusively utilised Playmobil figures. However, these figures come with certain limitations: they can be difficult to obtain, and with the growing prevalence of online meetings and sessions, it has become necessary to explore innovative approaches to make the method more accessible.
