Abused and traumatized children have special therapeutic needs. This book focuses on the impact of trauma and how to help children achieve a positive resolution. Issues such as facilitating and intervening in post-traumatic play are highlighted along with clinical examples of treatment planning and technique selection. Case vignettes of child victims of physical and sexual abuse and neglect demonstrate the use of nondirective and directive play therapy.
With its valuable insights and practical guidance, this book is an essential resource for all mental health professionals who work with abused children, as well as for those who work with adult survivors of abuse. Other professionals who come into contact with abused children such as protective service workers, medical professionals, clergy, teachers, and day-care professionals will find much of interest.
