Review quote

This book should be in the libraries of all clinicians who seek variety and creativity in their work with children. 101 More Favorite Play Therapy Techniques spans art, games, puppetry, toys, and group play to suggest powerful but practical tools for therapists. Because of the wealth of techniques offered in this book, it is guaranteed to hold something of value for each of its readers. I endorse this volume 101 times over. -- Janine S. Shelby, PhD, University of California, Los Angeles Can there REALLY be 101 MORE favorite and MEANINGFUL play therapy techniques? The answer is yes-for the book editors have selected ones that are more than contributors' favorites. They are techniques that will either provide play therapists with variations on basic methods for use with children who present difficult challenges to the therapist, or offer some entirely new directions. The insightful introductions and rationales provided by the contributors are worth reading in their own right. Readers should find their knowledge base enriched and their application repertoire expanded. -- Louise Guerney, PhD, RPT-S, National Institute of Relationship Enhancement, Bethesda, MD As if 101 Play Therapy Techniques weren't enough, here are 101 More Play Therapy Techniques to apply, adapt, and easily implement in a variety of settings. The user-friendly format allows busy professionals quick access to a plethora of play therapy techniques that can be used with children of all ages. This book will not become a dust collector on a bookshelf but rather a rich resource offering new and innovative play therapy techniques. Way to go, Kaduson and Schaefer! -- M. Kay Hannah, PhD, Michigan State University School of Social Work, Life Guidance Services Psychotherapists will find this packed with key ideas and useful applications. * Midwest Book Review *
