Charles E. Schaefer (Editor), Donna Cangelosi


Play Therapy Techniques was one of the first books compiled of both classic and recent play strategies to be offered to child clinicians. It proved to be a valuable sourcebook of useful and practical techniques for both novice and experienced play therapists because it included such a wide variety of play techniques. Among these are art, puppet, sand dramatic water, doll, costume and game play.


The second edition of Play Therapy Techniques includes seven new chapters in addition to the original twenty-four. These lively chapters expand the comprehensive scope of the book by describing issues involved in beginning and ending therapy, using metaphors, playing music and ball, and applying the renowned Color your Life technique.


The extensive selection of play techniques described in this book will add to the clinical repertoire of students and practitioners of child therapy and counseling. When used in combination with formal education and clinical supervision, Play Therapy Techniques, Second Edition, can be especially useful for developing treatment plans to address the specific needs of various clinical populations. Students and practitioners of child therapy and counseling, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, and child life specialists will find this second of Play Therapy Techniques informative and clinically useful.
