Like most mental health treatment models, the field of play therapy is moving from solo theoretical approaches/orientations to an eclectic framework that integrates more than one perspective. Integrative Play Therapy, edited by and contributed to by leaders in the field of play therapy, is the first book of its kind to present methods for blending the best theories together to arrive at the most efficacious treatments. Play therapists and other mental health professionals are provided with conceptual chapters that introduce the nature and importance of working with an integrative approach.
