Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Helping therapists hone their skills for working with diverse children and families, this unique volume looks at play therapy through a multicultural lens. Experienced practitioners examine how cultural traditions, values, shared experiences, and expectations may influence the ways children express themselves through play, the ideas and feelings they associate with different activities, and the responses of children and parents to particular interventions. Filled with evocative clinical material, chapters highlight specific issues to consider when working with African American, Hispanic, Native American, and Asian American children. Also provided are suggestions for setting up a therapeutic playroom that is engaging and welcoming to all, including details on where to obtain multicultural toys, games, and art materials.

Book News Annotation:

To assist therapists working with diverse populations, this collection addresses a variety of multicultural influences on the universal activity of play. Experienced practitioners explore cultural norms related to pretend play, games, expressing feelings, personal space and communication. They also discuss the social pressures many clients face, such as racism, poverty and acculturation. An appendix offers suggestions for obtaining multicultural toys, games and art materials.
