Description - Play Therapy by Ann Cattanach

Play is one of the most creative opportunities open to a child, and is of growing interest to therapists and others in the caring professions. This book examines how children develop skills in play as a way of being creative, and how they can use play as a therapeutic process by mirroring their own life experiences in their games. The author examines the role of the therapist, and the different methodologies involved in therapy, such as creative free play and task-based play. She also covers the use of play therapy in different work settings, such as the education service, the social services, and hospitals. The author has also published "Play Therapy with Abused Children".
