Family play therapy and play therapy need not be exclusionary. The two approaches actually can enhance and enrich each other. While each therapist ultimately will use his or her own ideas in the critical combining of both methods, Family Play Therapy offers various possibilities and as such, helps therapists to help their family patients to be readily engaged in treatment and to experience therapy as a fun, inclusive, transforming time together.

Industry Reviews

The good news of Family Play Therapy is that dysfunctional family patterns can be altered and children can be extricated from 'problem' roles by the wise melding of various family therapy and play therapy techniques. Mental health professionals will be enlightened, intrigued, and, hopefully, stimulated by this timely and sage text edited by Charles Schaefer and Lois Carey. This large collection of chapters by practitioners from many fields offers creative therapeutic styles that will educate and empower therapists to be more innovative in their work with children and families whatever their training and experience. -- Emily Marlin, M.S.W. This book provides the missing, crucial link to unite child and family therapy. It gives family therapists practical information about using play therapy techniques, and offers play therapists a rationale and guidelines for including families in a child's therapy sessions. This is a much-needed text that promises to make a major impact on the practice of both child and family therapy. -- Nancy Boyd Webb, D.S.W.
