"Play research and play therapy have much to learn from one another. This book opens up an important conversation between the two fields, reviewing a variety of clinical approaches and techniques that incorporate a play component. Fostering collaboration among researchers and clinicians is sure to help all of us better serve children and their families. The book will make a good supplemental text for courses in child development or play therapy." - Linda E. Homeyer, Texas State University -- San Marcos, USA "Bravo! This book offers a balanced discussion of the value of play. Weaving together chapters on play and learning, assessment, and play-based intervention, it is a timely 'go-to' resource for researchers and clinicians alike." - Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, Lefkowitz Professor of Psychology, Temple University, Pennsylvania, USA
