10090: 101 Favorite Play Therapy Techniques

About the Course:

Arranged for easy reference, each bearing a succinct description and targeted application, the interventions illustrated–including Fantasy, Storytelling, Expressive Arts, Game Play, Puppet Play, Play Toys and Objects, and Group Play–have been used with success to address such common problems as low self-esteem and unresolved fear and anger as well as more serious difficulties arising from loss, abuse, and sexual trauma. All the contributors share the enthusiasm and respect of editors Kaduson and Schaefer for the special value of play therapy in reaching and healing young patients. Together, they have created an eclectic, accessible, and comprehensive resource for students and professionals that will also support parents seeking to open new lines of communication with their children.
