Separated into seven categories for easy reference, the techniques within each chapter are applied to practice situations in a concise format for easy reference and use.

The interventions illustrated include Storytelling, to enhance verbalizations in children; Expressive Art, to promote children's coping ability by using various art mediums; Game Play, to help children express themselves in a playful environment; Puppet Play, to facilitate the expression of conflicting emotions; Play Toys and Objects, to demonstrate the therapeutic use of various toys and objects in the playroom; Group Play, to offer methods and play techniques for use in group settings; and Other, to provide miscellaneous techniques that are useful in many settings.

This book is a response to the evident need of clinicians for easy to use play therapy techniques. A welcome addition to the earlier collection, it is designed to help children enhance verbalization of feeling, manage anger, deal with loss and grief, and heal their wounds through the magic of play therapy. Clear and marvelously simple, this manual will be an invaluable addition to any professional's or student's library.
A Jason Aronson Book
This book should be in the libraries of all clinicians who seek variety and creativity in their work with children. 101 More Favorite Play Therapy Techniques spans art, games, puppetry, toys, and group play to suggest powerful but practical tools for therapists. Because of the wealth of techniques offered in this book, it is guaranteed to hold something of value for each of its readers. I endorse this volume 101 times over.
