MEDIA REVIEWS
The work of an artist, elegant in its simplicity. -- Colleen McNally, Ph.D.
In Relationship Play Therapy, the child-centered approach comes alive. Seasoned and aspiring practitioners alike can participate in the process through the encounters between child and therapist, which are vividly portrayed in verbatim sessions ranging from transitional situation to serious disturbances in behavior. Moustakas's presentation allows us to witness the development of the therapeutic relationship, the child's use of the raw materials of the playroom, and finally the resolution of the child's internal conflict with the external world. Required reading for anyone in the field. -- Patricia Armstrong, Ph.D., M.S.W.
Clark Moustakas's new book keeps us grounded in the essential qualities of the play therapist and the play therapy relationship: faith, acceptance, and respect. Moustakas brings to life a wealth of theoretical principles, values, and methods with abundant case material from his experience with children and families. For both the student and the beginning play therapist, he provides orientation and a strong foundation for entering the world of the children with whom they will work; the experienced play therapist will recognize a return to basic, natural ways of being with children as we engage them in the powerful healing process. Relationship Play Therapy represents an enriching opportunity to share the current thinking of one of the pioneers in the field. -- Alvin Ramsey PhD
In my own quiet way I follow the path of the firebrand, daring to live, to be, to create in the rhythms of darkness and light, believing that in every learner, in every person, there is a bright and unique spark of energy and meaning that is often hidden or denied. I rejoice when I can inspire the trust, confidence, and support that frees energy and spirit for creative expression. My participation as an educator and psychotherapist has focused on the healthy resources of the person, while not ignoring the dark side: I am firmly committed to the future and possibilities for emergence and growth rather than barriers from the past of blockages to the present. -- Clark Moustakas
