This widely used practitioner resource and course text, now significantly revised, is considered the most comprehensive guide to working with children who have experienced major losses, family upheavals, violence in the school or community, and other traumatic events. Leading experts present a range of play and creative arts therapy techniques in chapters organized around in-depth case examples. Informed by the latest knowledge on crisis intervention and trauma, the fourth edition encompasses work with adolescents as well as younger children. Each chapter concludes with instructive questions for study or reflection.

New to This Edition
  • Expanded age range: now includes expressive therapy approaches for adolescents.
  • More attention to traumatic stress reactions and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD); several chapters address complex trauma.
  • Extensively revised with the latest theory, practices, and research; many new authors.
  • Additional topics: parental substance abuse, group work with adolescents, chronic medical conditions, animal-assisted play therapy and courtroom testimony, and more.
