Reviews and Endorsements

"An auspicious and timely publication, Play Therapy and Telemental Health provides a critical and much needed resource. Dr. Stone has assembled an impressive panel of play therapy and telehealth professionals, who provide practical material, backed up with appropriate theory. This cutting-edge book belongs on the shelves of both practitioners and academics." - Daniel Sweeney, PhD, professor of clinical mental health counseling and clinical director of the NW Center for Play Therapy Studies at George Fox University in Portland, Oregon, USA.

"Relevant for this time of crisis and beyond, this book compiles evidence-informed foundations and interventions that answer the questions we have all been asking about play therapy in the time of telehealth practice. The question is not whether to read this important book but how soon." - Susan M. Carter, PhD, RPT-S, clinical director at the Center for Change and Growth, PLC, in Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA.

"Just as the play therapist adjusts to the minute needs of the child in the playroom, so too do they adapt and respond to major public health and safety measures in response to COVID-19. However, when one door closes, another entrance opens, and this text opens the virtual platform and digital doors into a new and exciting play-therapy world. The scope of this text links relevant theory to practice and provides pertinent discourse to critically reflect and connect to clients in a variety of contexts through telemental health. A valuable resource for those who are, or wish to be, digitally savvy play therapists." - Judi A. Parson, PhD, RPT-S, discipline lead, course director, and senior lecturer in play therapy at Deakin University, Victoria, Australia.
