Profiles of Play : Assessing and Observing Structure and Process in Play Therapy Paperback / softback
Written by a leading child psychologist, this clearly written and practical book provides a template for interpreting change and meaning in children's lives through their play activity.
It shows how each child's pattern of play has a distinct profile of measurable features.
These can be identified - and can be used to assess the child's development. The processes of change that a child goes through and the different kinds of play profiles are clearly illustrated with examples from real life.
This will be a useful resource for all professionals who work with children and are looking to support their development through a deeper understanding of their inner experiences, including family therapists, educational psychologists, special needs teachers, play therapists and child care social workers.
