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.
