An in-depth look at state-of-the-art play therapy practices and principles. While it updates readers on significant advances in sand play diagnosis, theraplay, group play, and other well-known approaches, Handbook of Play Therapy, Volume Two also covers important adaptations of play therapy to client populations such as the elderly, and new applications of play therapeutic methods such as in the assessment of sexually abused children.

Featuring contributions by twenty leading authorities from psychology, social work, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, and other related disciplines, Handbook of Play Therapy, Volume Two draws on clinical and research material previously scattered throughout the professional literature and organizes it into four main sections for easy reference:

* Theoretical approaches - including Adlerian, cognitive, behavioral, gestalt, and control theory approaches as well as family, ecosystem, and others

* Developmental adaptations - covers ground-breaking new adaptations for adolescents, adults, and the elderly

* Methods and techniques - explores advances in traditional techniques such as sand play, Jungian play therapy, and art therapy, and examines other new, high-tech play therapies

* Applications - reports on therapeutic applications for psychic trauma, sex abuse, cancer patients, psychotics, and many others.

The companion volume to the celebrated classic in the field, Handbook of Play Therapy, Volume Two is an indispensable resource for play therapists, child psychologists and psychiatrists, school counselors and psychologists, and all mental health professionals.
