This highly practical book presents current developments in play therapy, including innovative applications for particular problems and populations. Contributors first discuss the latest ideas and techniques emerging from object relations, experiential, dynamic, and narrative perspectives. Next, research evaluating the effectiveness of play interventions is reviewed in detail. The book's third and largest section demonstrates creative approaches for helping children deal with a variety of adverse circumstances: homelessness, family problems, sexual abuse, social aggression, natural disasters, and more. Throughout, rich case illustrations enhance the book's utility for clinicians.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Filling a void for today's play therapist, this volume covers theories, research, and applications that have not yet been addressed in depth in other texts. It includes a diverse range of practical, hands-on approaches for specific populations. The book is accessible enough for students, yet will also serve as a practical, unique reference for experienced professionals. I highly recommend this much-needed addition to the literature."--Athena A. Drewes, PsyD, RPT-S, The Astor Home for Children, Poughkeepsie, New York

"Schaefer and Kaduson bring together a wonderful collection of knowledgeable and thoughtful authors to inform, educate, and enlighten. Overviews of approaches and specific applications bring valuable, current information to the reader. Up-to-date reviews of research in the field are timely and helpful. This book is a valuable addition to the continually growing play therapy literature."--Linda Homeyer, PhD, Department of Educational Administration and Psychological Services, Texas State University-San Marcos

"A groundbreaking work in the field of play therapy. This book contains the most up-to-date literature by world-renowned researchers and master therapists. The book takes the reader to a more in-depth understanding and appreciation of what play therapy can do, and shows how to do it well. I highly recommend this volume to experienced play therapists as well as novices. It is an important addition to any play therapy library."--Cynthia Reynolds, PhD, RPT-S, Department of Counseling, University of Akron
