Cultural Issues in Play Therapy Paperback / softback

Edited by Eliana Gil, Athena A. Drewes


Helping therapists hone their skills for working with diverse children and families, this unique volume looks at play therapy through a multicultural lens.

Experienced practitioners examine how cultural factors may influence the ways children express themselves through play, the feelings they associate with different activities, and the responses of children and parents to particular interventions.

Filled with evocative clinical material, chapters highlight specific issues to consider when working with African American, Latino, Native American, and Asian American children.

The book also provides suggestions for setting up a therapeutic playroom that is engaging and welcoming to all.
