Description - Linking Parents to Play Therapy by Deborah Killough McGuire
Effectively involved parents make play therapy more productive for the child. Yet, encouraging parental involvement can be riddled with practical and theoretical questions for beginning therapists and seasoned practitioners alike. Designed to be a practical guide for the play therapist this study includes: coverage of legal and medical issues; pragmatic assignments for parents; guidelines for working with angry and resistant parents; a listing of state protective and advocacy agencies; and tips for working with managed care. Numerous case examples, professional forms, and a parenting guide facilitate application of the concepts. The book combines theoretical understanding with a variety of techniques to make working with parents possible, practical, and productive.
