Government reports emphasize the dire need for counseling services to be accessible and effective for children in need in the United States. We employed a single case exploratory design and used group and individual Adlerian play therapy (AdPT) as the independent variable to examine its effects on children with disruptive classroom behaviors and poor social skills. Results for each participant revealed effective to very effective treatment effects during the intervention and follow-up phases of the designs.
