Reviews and Endorsements

Innovations in Play Therapy is a unique compilation of discussions on current and pressing issues in play therapy: topics commonly left out of other play therapy resources. Designed to help play therapists fill in the gaps as therapeutic considerations multiply, this book includes coverage of such timely topics as:
* what play therapists need to know about medication
* legal and ethical issues in play therapy
* cultural considerations
* play as a diagnostic tool
* innovative procedures such as child-centered group play therapy and intensive short-term group play therapy
* play therapy with special populations such as autistic children. Children with chronic illness, selective mute children, physically abused children, and the elderly
* play therapy with traumatized children in a crisis situation
* work as a traveling play therapist
* All based upon an unwavering belief on the profound healing capacity of the relationship, the discussions in this book arm therapists with knowledge to enhance their work with increasingly diverse groups and ever changing circumstances.

'This timely book fills in the holes in so much of our basic play therapy training those topics which cannot be addressed due to time limits, but which are so essential to effective play therapy practice.' Emily Oe, author of Kaleidoscope of Play Therapy Stories
