"Play Therapy in Action is a wonderful resource for the person new to play therapy or for a person wishing to review. It contains a wealth of information in presenting succinct perspectives on various theories of play therapy. These theories then transfer from the abstract into the functional realm of practice so that the reader can move from the cognitive understanding to the experimental. Practitioners will recognize some of their own experiences in the cases presented and be exposed to nee possibilities for treatment. It is rare to find a single volume where such an abundance of information is presented so concisely." Carol C. Norton and Byron E. NortonA Jason Aronson Book

Reviews:

All of the authors of this book conduct play therapy that is much more therapy than merely play. More importantly, they expose themselves in detail and provide their readers with direct insight into the psychotherapeutic process. Verbatim interchanges are found throughout the book with associated commentary that explains specifically what the therapist has done and the rationale for the particular maneuver and/or response. A broad range of therapeutic approaches is to be found here, a range that covers the whole gamut of psychotherapeutic approaches being utilized at this time. Kottman and Schaefer are to be congratulated for their important contribution to the child psychotherapy literature.--Richard A. Gardner
