Child-Centred Play Therapy Summary

Child-Centred Play Therapy by Janet West

The value of play therapy in treating disturbed and/or abused children is becoming increasingly recognised. This book introduces the concept of play therapy, using case studies to address a range of theoretical and practical issues, including the practical requirements for play therapy, the type of children that may benefit from it, problem areas, evaluation and counselling. In this second edition the continued use of a case-study approach and the introduction of interactive learning exercises should combine to give the book a unique flavour. The new edition is a 25% revision and has been updated to include new material on play therapy with adults, legal aspects of therapy and a greater emphasis on counselling skills.

Child-Centred Play Therapy Reviews

Parents and professionals will find this an invaluable introduction to the subject. Early Education (of the first edition) I cannot recommend this book highly enough Caduceus (of the first edition) An invaluable read for both practising and intending play therapists. The format is clear, logical, interactive, and easy to read...comprehensive and well referenced...as an educational psychologist I found the book a useful guide for reflecting upon my own practice. Educational Psychology in Practice Draws on the author's extensive experience as a play therapist and highlights the value of play therapy by the use of case studies...I would recommend this book not only to social workers but to other professionals who work with children and young people.
