The essential guide to game play therapy for mental health practitioners

The revised and updated third edition of Game Play Therapy offers psychologists and psychiatrists a guide to game play therapy's theoretical foundations and contains the practical applications that are appropriate for children and adolescents. Game playing has proven to invoke more goal-directed behavior, has the benefit of interpersonal interaction, and can perform a significant role in the adaptation to one's environment. With contributions from noted experts in the field, the third edition contains information on the time-tested, classic games and the most recent innovations and advances in game play approaches.

Game Play Therapy's revised third edition (like the previous editions) continues to fill a gap in the literature by offering mental health practitioners the information needed to understand why and how to use this intervention effectively. The contributors offer advice for choosing the most useful games from the more than 700 now available and describe the fundamentals of administering the games. This important updated book:

Contains material on the recent advances in the field including information on electronic games and disorder-specific gamesIncludes illustrative case studies that explore the process of game therapyReviews the basics of the underlying principles and applications of game therapyOffers a wide-range of games with empirical evidence of the effectiveness of game therapy

Written for psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mental health clinicians, the revised third edition of Game Play Therapy offers a guide that shows how to apply game therapy techniques to promote socialization, encourage the development of identity and self-esteem, and help individuals master anxiety.
