About the Author

Susan M. Knell, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist and current Director of the Diagnostic Assessment Center of the Child Guidance Center of Greater Cleveland.


The term play therapy connotes . . . a psychodynamically based type of intervention. Susan Knell's book expands on this . . . traditional view of play therapy. She discusses the various theoretical approaches to play therapy, and . . . then describes the integration of cognitive-behavioral interventions with more traditional play therapy. . . This is an excellent book that can be read by therapists from all persuasions who deal with children with a variety of therapeutic problems. -- Dennis P. Cantwell
This long awaited volume is a landmark in the continuing application of cognitive-behavioral approaches to diverse disorders and patient populations. For the first time, the cognitive therapist can draw on Susan Knell's vast experience in integrating cognitive behavioral principles into play therapy. The author provides not only a blueprint for working with children but gives detailed guidelines for treating typical problems of childhood. This book is a `must read' for novice and experienced child therapists. -- Aaron T. Beck M.D., professor of psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine
