Through the stories of individual children, this book will illuminate the process of creative, play-based child psychotherapy. Each chapter focuses on a particular issue that brings a child or a young person to the therapy room, and explores the use and meaning of particular objects and "object games'. Readers will gain a profound understanding through these dynamic stories of therapy channeled through the objects the children choose to bring into play.
