about this item

In 13 chapters, mental health specialists from the US and Europe outline directive and nondirective evidence-based play interventions for children, integrating cognitive-behavioral techniques. They describe play interventions to reduce the social, emotional, behavioral, and developmental difficulties faced by children, including interventions for young children, children dealing with separation or divorce, and diverse populations, as well as interventions for internalizing and externalizing disorders (depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, hospitalization and illness, disruptive behavior disorders, and ADHD), and followed by interventions for developmental disorders, including autism and the use of child parent relationship therapy. Each chapter details clinical theory and observations, case examples, and research. This edition incorporates new research on treatment models for different childhood disorders and the challenges arising from new mental health initiatives.
