Play therapy expert Terry Kottman and her colleague Kristin Meany-Walen provide a comprehensive update to this spirited and fun text on integrating Adlerian techniques into play therapy. Clinicians, school counselors, and students will find this to be the definitive guide for using Adlerian strategies with children to foster positive growth and effective communication with their parents and teachers.

After an introduction to the basics of the approach and the concepts of Individual Psychology, the stages of Adlerian play therapy are outlined through step-by-step instructions, detailed treatment plans, an ongoing case study, and numerous vignettes. In addition to presenting up-to-date information on trends in play therapy, this latest edition emphasizes the current climate of evidence-based treatment and includes a new chapter on conducting research in play therapy. Appendixes contain useful worksheets, checklists, and resources that can be easily integrated into practice. Additional resources related to this book are at the link below and on Terry Kottman's website

"Kottman and Meany-Walen have written a wonderful new edition. A case study woven throughout the book follows a child and caretakers through the various stages of thoughtful and thorough treatment planning. The appendixes assist the reader in applying Adlerian concepts, and are helpful and easy to use. Most enjoyably, reading this book is like being in the room with the authors. Their personalities leap off the page in so many pleasant and playful ways. This is a must-have book for play therapists, regardless of approach."

-Linda E. Homeyer, PhD

"This highly recommended book is a rare combination of uncommon creativity and avid scholarship that reflects the complementary talents and gifts of the authors. Kottman and Meany-Walen have written a highly useful and practical guide for counselors to master the essentials of Adlerian play therapy."
