This publication has much to offer play therapists, family counselors, and clinical supervisors with supervisees working with family dynamics. — Association for Play Therapy Newsletter
Green, Myrick and Baggerly have edited the most comprehensive book on the integration of family counseling and play therapy to appear to date. This is an area of major importance to all play therapists who need to understand their own family of origin and to incorporate the family system when working with children. Highly recommended. — John Allan, Professor Emeritus, University of British Columbia, Canada
