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.
