Trauma and Play Therapy : Helping Children Heal, Paperback / softback Book


Trauma and Play Therapy synthesizes new developments in the study of children's trauma recovery to assist clinicians in combining play therapy with other powerful ways of addressing the needs of hurt children.

The TraumaPlayTM model, formerly known as Flexibly Sequential Play Therapy, equips practitioners to manage and adapt aspects of the play therapy place and process in order to help children tell their stories while draining the emotional toxicity from traumatic experiences.

Chapters explore the neurobiological and developmental foundations of play therapy as well as strategies for navigating children's trauma in relation to specific aspects of play therapy such as sensory integration, metaphor, and humor.

Enriched by a tapestry of illustrative case examples and tools for therapists, this is a vital new book for clinicians working at the intersection of play and children's trauma.
