101 Favorite Play Therapy Techniques is just what child and mental health practitioners are looking for - a wealth of ideas to use with children and families. This wonderfully practical book presents play therapy techniques that are quickly read, easily understood, and readily implemented in a variety of settings. This book will appeal to clinicians, educators, and child caregivers from all orientations. Perhaps its biggest contribution goes beyond its covers in stimulating readers' own creativity in developing and adapting play therapy techniques to meet the challenges of their important work.
101 Favorite Play Therapy Techniques incorporates methods developed to elicit the best responses from children by therapists representing cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and other orientations, and selected for their practicality, specificity, and originality. Arranged for easy reference, each bearing a succinct description and targeted application, the interventions illustrated - including Fantasy, Storytelling, Expressive Arts, Game Play, Puppet Play, Play Toys and Objects, and Group Play - have been used with success to address such common problems as low self-esteem and unresolved fear and anger, as well as more serious difficulties arising from loss, abuse, and sexual trauma.
Whether their purpose is diagnosis or increasing the socialization of groups of children with virtually any problem, play therapists - irrespective of orientation - will find useful methods in this most comprehensive collection of creative techniques. All are presented in a clear, concise way and classified into sections so therapists can easily select and apply them.
101 More Favorite Play Therapy Techniques should be in the libraries of all clinicians who seek variety and creativity in their work with children. This book spans art, games, puppetry, toys, and group play to suggest powerful but practical tools for therapists. Because of the wealth of techniques offered in this book, it is guaranteed to hold something of value for each of its readers.Separated into seven categories for easy reference, the techniques within each chapter are applied to practice situations in a concise format for easy reference and use.
The interventions illustrated include Storytelling, to enhance verbalizations in children; Expressive Art, to promote children's coping ability by using various art mediums; Game Play, to help children express themselves in a playful environment; Puppet Play, to facilitate the expression of conflicting emotions; Play Toys and Objects, to demonstrate the therapeutic use of various toys and objects in the playroom; Group Play, to offer methods and play techniques for use in group settings; and Other, to provide miscellaneous techniques that are useful in many settings.
This book is a response to the evident need of clinicians for easy to use play therapy techniques. A welcome addition to the earlier collection, it is designed to help children enhance verbalization of feeling, manage anger, deal with loss and grief, and heal their wounds through the magic of play therapy. Clear and marvelously simple, this manual will be an invaluable addition to any professional's or student's library.
