Using Superheroes in Counseling and Play Therapy by Lawrence C. Rubin

Book Description

With insight from contributors such as Dr. Michael Brody, Patty Scanlon, and Roger Kaufmann, Lawrence Rubin takes the reader on a how-to tour of the benefits of using pop-culture and fantasy in psychotherapy and play therapy. Not only does this therapy apply in working with children, but Rubin demonstrates that it can be an effective therapeutic course with adolescents as well as adults. Early childhood memories of how we felt pretending to have the power to save the world or our families in the face of impending danger still resonate in our adult lives, making the use of this therapy with adults highly effective. In presenting case studies and wisdom gleaned from practicing therapists' experience, Lawrence Rubin shows how it is possible to uncover children's secret identities, assist treatment of adolescents with sexual behavior problems, and inspire the journey of individuation for gay and lesbian clients, all by paying attention to our intrinsic social need for superhero and science-fiction fantasy and play.
