Summary

Summary

This popular casebook and text focuses on the treatment of children who have experienced such stressful situations as parental death or divorce, abuse and neglect, HIV/AIDS in the family, community violence, tragic accidents, and war. Play therapy methods presented include art, storytelling, doll-play, group art activities, and games. Each in-depth case study is accompanied by an up-to-date literature review, a case summary, an assessment and treatment plan, and discussion questions. The second edition also features follow-up reports of six teenagers originally seen in therapy as children.
