Reviews

"A very timely book, rich in methodology and technique....Enjoyable and thought-provoking, this book provides a foundation for creative interventions which practitioners can build upon and adapt to meet their own needs. Recommended to all social workers in this clinical field and to students preparing for field practice."--CASW Bulletin (Canadian Association of Social Workers)

"In each of the papers comprising this book for practitioners is a session-by-session set of plans for work with a patient group presenting with one of the following problems: fear and phobias, grief, trauma, attention-deficit disorder, divorcing parents, chronic illness, adoption, disruptive behavior, sexual abuse, deficits in social skills, and lack of parental skills....This is an excellent text for novices and for therapists making a transition from traditional psychodynamic work to a more short-term, problem-focused approach....Its orientation is certainly congruent with our present managed care environment."--Readings "This approach is particularly useful for clinicians working in managed care or other environments where time and resources may be limited. A wide range of techniques and theoretical orientations are represented."--Journal of Social Work Education "Scholarly, comprehensive, insightful, thought-provoking, Short-Term Play Therapy for Children is a seminal, highly recommended work that calls upon the best minds in the field of child psychology and therapy to create an invaluable text and reference for students and practitioners."--Wisconsin Bookwatch "This is a very timely book that draws upon a wide breadth of talent in the field of play therapy. It is rich in methodology and technique, and will help practitioners conform to the rigors of the new territory of managed care. A wide variety of diagnoses are addressed, and the techniques are focused and powerful in finding timely resolutions to difficult situations. Enjoyable and thought-provoking, the book provides a foundation for creative interventions which practitioners can build upon and adapt to meet their own needs."--John Paul Lilly, MS, LCSW, RPT/S, Brigham Young University "This superior, well-balanced collection is an indispensable guide for professionals interested in a time-limited approach to the treatment of childhood emotional, behavioral, and family difficulties. Brilliantly practical and easily implemented, the imaginative techniques presented in each chapter will be a welcome addition to the repertoire of seasoned professionals as well as budding therapists seeking concrete, step-by-step guidelines. Readers will be further enlightened by the presentation of the theoretical framework underlying each innovative therapeutic format, as well as the engaging case studies. After reading this book, child and family therapists from various professional backgrounds will be much better equipped to confront and triumph over the enormous challenges presented by managed care mandates."--Karen Gitlin-Weiner, PsyD, private practice, Hicksville, NY "This is a welcome guide to short-term play therapy with children. Chapters have been selected to demonstrate a range of short-term play therapy approaches, for use in child therapy with individuals, families, and groups. Short-term therapy is the wave of the future, and this book will help practitioners navigate the waters with confidence and skill."--Nancy Boyd Webb, DSW, University Distinguished Professor of Social Work, Fordham University


"Kaduson and Schaefer bring together an impressive group of authors who cover a wide range of play therapy venues. Accordingly, readers are provided multiple and varied theoretical models and ways to apply them in practice....Case illustrations are generously provided throughout the book and these include dialogue from sessions. This presentation is particularly useful to assist the transition of theory into practice. The authors of the chapters write in a manner that is both scholarly and practice oriented, and can be used by different mental health disciplines....A 'must' for both clinicians working with children and families, and for faculty instructing those who will do so in the future."-- Families in Society

"This volume offers a great service to professionals who desire effective responses to the clinical demands of treating children and their families....The book thoroughly describes treatment interventions using a consistent format that takes the reader through specific applications in a clear, replicable, how-to fashion....While the book is designed for the professional who has a working knowledge of various theoretical frameworks, it is thorough enough to be used by a beginning clinician....it is clear from the start that this book is intended to be used. It is meant to be referenced often rather than resting on a bookshelf."-- Social Work With Groups
