Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Recognizing that managed care often places time constraints upon therapists, the editors (both private practitioners of child psychotherapy) have brought together 13 contributions that provide short-term approaches to play therapy for children, family play therapy, and group play therapy. Strategies including cognitive- behavioral, gestalt, client-centered, structured, filial, and parent- child interaction play therapies are discussed as useful interventions for such issues as phobias, grief, trauma, classroom disturbance, and attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
