About this item

This guide outlines 58 classic play therapy techniques, chosen because they have been popular or have been around at least since the 1980s, as well as because they are user-friendly in terms of simplicity and cost and are applicable to different problems, ages, and cultures. Organized by toy and object play, metaphors and storytelling, role play, creative arts, imagery and fantasy, game play, and other techniques, they draw on psychoanalytic, Jungian, Adlerian, humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, narrative, Gestalt, solution-focused, and prescriptive orientations, and each includes a historical perspective, rationale for its use, recommended age, materials, implementation in therapy, underlying empirical findings, and applications to specific difficulties and disorders, as well as recent variations.
