The Healing Power of Play: Working with Abused Children

The Healing Power of Play: Working with Abused Children Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Abused and traumatized children have special therapeutic needs. This book focuses on the impact of trauma and how to help children achieve a positive resolution. Issues such as facilitating and intervening in post-traumatic play are highlighted along with clinical examples of treatment planning and technique selection. Case vignettes of child victims of physical and sexual abuse and neglect demonstrate the use of nondirective and directive play therapy.

With its valuable insights and practical guidance, this book is an essential resource for all mental health professionals who work with abused children, as well as for those who work with adult survivors of abuse. Other professionals who come into contact with abused children such as protective service workers, medical professionals, clergy, teachers, and day-care professionals will find much of interest.

Synopsis:

This book describes how therapists can both facilitate constructive play therapy and intervene in posttraumatic play to help children who have been traumatized by abuse or neglect achieve a positive resolution. Traditional techniques of play therapy are reviewed for their application to this population. Throughout, numerous therapeutic aids are described to enhance the child's capacity to communicate verbally or symbolically. To help clinicians translate theory into daily practice, the book presents six detailed clinical vignettes that offer step-by-step guidelines for assessment and intervention in different situations of abuse or neglect.

Synopsis:

Children traumatized by either abuse or neglect have special therapeutic needs. They can be difficult to engage for a variety of reasons: many have been frightened into silence and many have had their trust in adults betrayed; they may be hostile and acting out; and, if young, they may lack the sophistication of language or sexual terminology to clearly impart what has occurred. Whether or not children know how to communicate directly with a therapist, all children know how to play. This book describes how therapists can both facilitate constructive play therapy and intervene in posttraumatic play to help children who have been traumatized by abuse or neglect achieve a positive resolution.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 197-204) and index.
