Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Empirically Based Play Interventions for Children is a compilation of innovative, well-designed play interventions, presented for the first time in one text. Play therapy is the oldest and most popular form of child therapy in clinical practice and is widely considered by practitioners to be uniquely responsive to children's developmental needs. Play promotes normal child development and can help alleviate emotional and behavioral difficulties. This book answers the call from professional and managed-care organizations for research-based treatment methods with proven efficacy. It describes a range of play interventions that feature flexibility in service delivery and across settings, child populations and age groups. The editors and their contributors detail vital treatment components, including interventions that accommodate the developmental level of the child, target functional behaviors and competencies in children and parents, use psychometrically sound and clinically sensitive outcome assessments, and define successful outcomes by statistically meaningful methods. Clinicians and researchers alike will benefit from this landmark text and will gain a fuller understanding of the key ingredients for developing future play interventions.

Book News Annotation:

This text offers a clinical reference of evidence-based play interventions for a variety of populations and settings, illustrating both directive and non-directive approaches. Each chapter offers theory, observations, and data. Editors Reddy, Schaefer (psychology, Fairleigh Dickinson University), and Hall (a school psychologist) present 13 contributions from psychologists working in various contexts who discuss play prevention programs and interventions for internalizing, externalizing, and developmental disorders. Each chapter includes a description of the theoretical basis, treatment processes, outcome studies, and evaluation approach.
