Description:

The “Heartfelt Feelings Coloring Card Strategies” (HFCCS) are a series of strategies that can be used in play therapy, child therapy, family therapy, group therapy, and art therapy to facilitate the expression and sharing of heartfelt emotions.

Many clinicians have used some variation of the heart shape in child, play, art therapy and other creative arts therapies. A comprehensive review of these creative contributions can be found in the HFCCS Clinical Manual.

The Manual contained in the HFCCS Kit describes, gives directions, and offers clinical examples for both the HFS and the HFCCS. Perhaps the part of the “Heartfelt Feelings Strategies” (HFS) and the HFCCS that most distinguishes it from all the similar strategies using the heart shape in art, child and family therapy is that in both the HFS and HFCC, Dr. Crenshaw focuses on two core domains: Expressive and Relational.

The Expressive component offers structured therapeutic practice in identifying, labeling, and expressing feelings. These are key skills in affect regulation and for developing social competence. Allan Schore (2003a; 2003b) at UCLA, in his groundbreaking work on affect regulation has demonstrated that affect dysregulation is central to almost all forms of psychopathology so therapeutic interventions that address this crucial deficit will have wide application across the psychodiagnostic spectrum.
