Scaling is a quick way to capture details about goals and to assess current status and next steps in attaining those goals. The most important element to constructing a scale for a child is relevance to that individual child. Another active and concrete scaling intervention is Play Scaling, which is a physical representation of each client's scale. Although scaling toward a goal or preferred future may be the most frequent use of a scale, it is not the only way to use a scale. Scaling is an extremely useful therapeutic tool. Doll house ladders, or ladders created with masking tape on the floor or wall, give children a chance to move their fingers or their body to the 10 when they are describing their ideal future. Scaling is as effective with goal setting and imagining a future as it is with conversations about coping with tragedy and building confidence.
