The practice of play therapy has experienced a remarkable period of growth since the 1980s. Yet, currently there is no reference available covering the widely researched and implemented work of Louise Guerney, a founding figure in child-centered play therapy. Complete with a foreword from Dr. Guerney, this approachable, skills-based text is filled with case studies, learning activities and objectives, and classroom exercises. With extensive coverage of play therapy application, such as setting goals and treatment planning, this book is a welcome resource for school psychologists, play therapists, and students.
