Learn how to incorporate adult play therapy into your practice with this easy-to-use guide

In the Western world there has been a widening belief that play is not a trivial or childish pursuit but rather a prime pillar of mental health, along with love and work. Play Therapy with Adults presents original chapters written by a collection of international experts who examine the diverse approaches and clinical strategies available for successfully incorporating play therapy into adult-client sessions.

This timely guide covers healing through the use of a variety of play therapy techniques and methods. Various client groups and treatment settings are given special attention, including working with adolescents, the elderly, couples, individuals with dementia, and clients in group therapy.

Material is organized into four sections for easy reference:
* Dramatic role play
* Therapeutic humor
* Sand play and doll play
* Play groups, hypnoplay, and client-centered play


Play Therapy with Adults is a valuable book for psychologists, therapists, social workers, and counselors interested in helping clients explore themselves through playful activities.

First Sentence
As I begin to write this chapter, it is several weeks after September 11, 2001, the day the terrorists struck the heart of America, killing some 3,000 innocent civilians and fomenting fear among millions. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Classic! April 18 2003
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Charles Schaefer has done it again!
Play Therapy with Adults is destined to become a classic, and be used by therapists starting in graduate school, and continuing to be read for many, many years. The depth of this book is incredible; featuring many techniques for play therapy with adults. It covers dramatic role play, improvisational play with couples, the use of humor in therapy, sandplay, doll play, hypno-play, etc. Clients presenting with depression, illness, dementia, and dissociative disorders are among the adults who benefit from play therapy. As someone who has been doing play therapy for over 25 years, I really appreciate this book.
Well done!

By Marcy Willard - Published on Amazon.com

This book is excellent. I especially enjoyed the therapeutic humor chapter by Dr. Sultanoff. There are many helpful and insightful tips for therapists who want to use humor in the practice of psychotherapy with adults.
