"Wow! I love this book! It includes sufficiently detailed information for students yet has the depth practitioners need, with extensive sample dialogues and case examples providing insight into processes. Chapters on the integration of expressive arts, sandtray therapy, and puppet play offer much-needed information on disaster response, bereavement and loss, and groups in schools. This is a must have as either a textbook or for best practices."

-Linda E. Homeyer, PhD, professor at Texas State University and coauthor of Sandtray Therapy: A Practical Manual

"Group Play Therapy is an excellent introduction to the different theories, techniques, and applications of group play therapy. A very valuable resource for all who work with children. Highly recommended."

-Charles E. Schaefer, PhD, professor emeritus of psychology at Fairleigh Dickinson University

"Sweeney, Baggerly, and Ray enrich the field of play therapy immeasurably with this comprehensive volume. Group play therapy is an underutilized but essential approach in today's world of diminished treatment resources. This book is solidly grounded in theory and research and details diverse theoretical approaches and offers a range of specific techniques, compelling case studies, and coverage of multicultural issues, and ethics. Every play therapist will be amply rewarded for reading this book."

-David A. Crenshaw, PhD, clinical director of the Children's Home of Poughkeepsie and faculty associate at Johns Hopkins University
