This book is a practical guide for therapists wanting to integrate interactive games and challenges into their work. It provides current research supporting using ABC with trauma survivors and those recovering from addictions, as well as twelve activity-based chapters of various one-hour sessions of activities, complete with 50 photos.


This book is an impressive tour de force as it integrates the simplest forms of play with the most complex psychological dynamics that unfold as we work with mental illness and addiction. The most outstanding characteristic is its availability to the relatively new and naive activity therapist and its simultaneously profound implications for the more seasoned and sophisticated psychotherapist, particularly those of us who practice group psychotherapy.

— Jeffrey D. Roth, MD, lecturer, Department of Psychiatry, University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine and medical director, Working Sobriety Chicago
