Doody's Review Service

“Filling a void for today's play therapist, this volume covers theories, research, and applications that have not yet been addressed in depth in other texts. It includes a diverse range of practical, hands-on approaches for specific populations. The book is accessible enough for students, yet will also serve as a practical, unique reference for experienced professionals. I highly recommend this much-needed addition to the literature.”

—Athena A. Drewes, PsyD, RPT-S, The Astor Home for Children, Poughkeepsie, New York

“Schaefer and Kaduson bring together a wonderful collection of knowledgeable and thoughtful authors to inform, educate, and enlighten. Overviews of approaches and specific applications bring valuable, current information to the reader. Up-to-date reviews of research in the field are timely and helpful. This book is a valuable addition to the continually growing play therapy literature.”

—Linda Homeyer, PhD, Department of Educational Administration and Psychological Services, Texas State University-San Marcos

“A groundbreaking work in the field of play therapy. This book contains the most up-to-date literature by world-renowned researchers and master therapists. The book takes the reader to a more in-depth understanding and appreciation of what play therapy can do, and shows how to do it well. I highly recommend this volume to experienced play therapists as well as novices. It is an important addition to any play therapy library.”
