Illustrated with rich case examples, this widely used practitioner resource and text presents a range of play approaches that facilitate healing in a shorter time frame. Leading play therapists from diverse theoretical orientations show how to tailor brief interventions to each child's needs. Individual, family, and group treatment models are described and clinical guidelines are provided. Chapters demonstrate ways to rapidly build alliances with children, adolescents, and their caregivers; plan treatment for frequently encountered clinical problems; and get the most out of play materials and techniques.

Industry Reviews

“This volume offers a great service to professionals who desire effective responses to the clinical demands of treating children and their families....The book thoroughly describes treatment interventions....While the book is designed for the professional who has a working knowledge of various theoretical frameworks, it is thorough enough to be used by a beginning clinician..” (on the first edition)
