Description - Innovations in Play Therapy by Garry L. Landreth
This work is a compilation of discussions on current and pressing issues in play therapy. Designed to help play therapists fill in the gaps as therapeutic considerations multiply, this book includes coverage of topics such as: what play therapists need to know about medication; legal and ethical issues in play therapy; cultural considerations; play as a diagnostic tool; innovative procedures such as child-centred group play therapy and intensive short-term group play therapy; play therapy with special populations such as autistic children, children with chronic illness, selective mute children, physically abused children, and the elderly; play therapy with traumatized children in a crisis situation; and work as a travelling play therapist. All based upon a belief on the profound healing capacity of the relationship, the discussions in this book arm therapists with knowledge to enhance their work with increasingly diverse groups and ever changing circumstances.
