This book is unique in exploring the process of conducting short-term intensive group play therapy and the subsequent results. It focuses on play therapy with special populations of aggressive acting-out children, autistic children, chronically ill children, traumatized children, selective mute children, disassociative identity disorder adults with child alters, and the elderly.

The book addresses such vital issues as:

* How play therapy helps children

* Confidentiality in working with children

* How to work with parents

* What the play therapist needs to know about medications for children

The difficult dimension of diagnosis is clarified through specific descriptions of how the play therapist can use play behaviors to diagnose physical abuse, sexual abuse, and emotional maladjustment in children.

"Throughout the book, case examples wiht dialogue are given tobring the innovations to life. Supporting research and recommendations based on the author's practical experience give the book added credibility. Although this book is best suited for individuals witha solid understanding of play therapy theory and procedures, I would highly recomment it for both play therapist in training and the experience play therapist. Readers will be refreshed and equipped withplay therapy innovations for the 21st century."
