Play Therapy Techniques was one of the first books compiled of both classic and recent play strategies to be offered to child clinicians. It proved to be a valuable sourcebook of useful and practical techniques for both novice and experienced play therapists because it included such a wide variety of play techniques. Among these are art, puppet, sand dramatic water, doll, costume and game play.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This exceptionally comprehensive compilation of articles on play therapy techniques is interesting from a historical perspective as well as stimulating in its discussion of the special challenges that face the child therapist. Each chapter focuses on a specific play material, such as sand, water, finger paint, Nintendo games, and many others. Extensive clinical vignettes are used to illustrate the particular attributes of these play materials and how to effectively adapt them to meet the diagnostic picture presented by a particular child. -- Diana Siskind
This wonderful collection of classic and contemporary articles provides a treasure house of virtually every technique of play therapy ever developed. Each technique has the potential for being a valuable addition to the individual practitioner's repertoire. By carefully and discriminatingly selecting those that can be integrated into the practitioner's philosophy of play and then consistently applying them over time, therapists will find the tools to create an approach that works for them and, more importantly, for the children they serve. -- Louise Guerney
Psychoanalytic tradition has it that the language of the adult patient is free association and the language of the child is play. In this book, the reader finds a rich opportunity to become acquainted with experienced colleagues' techniques and can select for himself what will fit his own personality, his own training, and enrich his technical skills. This book offers him a new world. It is recommended to those who want to help the child discover and master healthy ways of growing up. -- Rudolf Ekstein
