Book Description

March 1 1997 0765702827 978-0765702821 1
Building on children's natural inclinations to pretend and reenact, play therapy is widely used in the treatment of psychological problems in childhood. 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. All the contributors share the enthusiasm and respect of editors Kaduson and Schaefer for the special value of play therapy in reaching and healing young patients. Together, they have created an eclectic, accessible, and comprehensive resource for students and professionals that will also support parents seeking to open new lines of communication with their children.

Format:Hardcover
An exelent book for all who are interested about children. The ideas about how to play with children are among the best I've seen yet. I specily like the onea about toddlers. I have personally put these teachings into effect and I have seen wonderful results on the way my children, and my students, approach things and people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for working as a professional with children Oct. 16 2005
By Judith A. Van Bebber - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have been using this in my therapy practice and have found it very resourceful. It has wonderful suggestions for the therapist to untilize in assisting children to express and resolve their issues when in situations they are unable to resolve through the expressions of words. They can express through play and in cognitve ways and it works!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good to have on hand June 24 2008
By J. Palmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am giving this book the same review as it's more current version, 101 More Favorite Play Therapy Techniques. There are a lot of really good, creative ideas in this first version, just as there are in the newer version. However, the one thing that is lacking in both books is a quick statement at the begining of each activity that identifies what age group and what general problem the activity is most appropriate for. Such information allows me to decide, right away, whether to invest the time in reading further about the activity if I think it would be relavent to a particular child I am working with.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very basic intro to play therapy Aug. 29 2008
By alice - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Although I have only had 5 years of experience in play therapy with elementary-age children, I felt that the techniques described in this book were basic and not very imaginative- in other words, I had already thought of many of them myself. Several of the techniques described are similar variations on the same theme; for example, the assigning colors to emotions and having kids color in hearts/bodies/etc. strategy was echoed numerous times. I suggest borrowing this from the library rather than purchasing it.

3.0 out of 5 stars just okay March 24 2008
By K. Catherman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Definately not as good as the other volumes. Techniques aren't as interesting and kid friendly. If you are trying to choose, go for volume 2.
