Play therapy can be enormously beneficial to children facing a wide range of psychological problems and stressful life situations. This practical volume presents a variety of play approaches that facilitate children's healing in a shorter time frame. Ideal for practitioners working within managed care, the book describes effective short-term methods for working with individual children, families, and groups. Chapters feature session-by-session guidelines and lively clinical illustrations that bring diverse techniques and theoretical orientations to life. Strategies are provided for addressing such difficulties as fears and phobias, grief, behavior problems, ADHD, and the effects of sexual abuse. Also covered are short-term interventions for teen parents and their children, children in divorced or adoptive families, and those whose families are affected by chronic illness.

From the Back Cover:

"This is a very timely book that draws upon a wide breadth of talent in the field of play therapy. It is rich in methodology and technique, and will help practitioners conform to the rigors of the new territory of managed care. A wide variety of diagnoses are addressed, and the techniques are focused and powerful in finding timely resolutions to difficult situations. Enjoyable and thought-provoking, the book provides a foundation for creative interventions which practitioners can build upon and adapt to meet their own needs." John Paul Lilly, MS, LCSW, RPT/S, Brigham Young University
