I read this book to try and spark some more ideas to use in therapy. I found that the book had 16 out of 101 things to suggest. Some of the techniques were advertisements for equipment in the therapy room or skills the therapist should learn (eg. sewing, magic, balloon sculpting) rather than actual techniques. Many techniques were very similar and were not distinct enough from each other to require a different chapter (1 chapter= 1 technique). Finally, much of the evidence that was provided for a give technique's effectiveness in therapy was the subject experience of the person that wrote on the technique rather than basis in what is known to be effective or research. Though a knowledgeable clinician can tease out the wheat from the chaff much of the book's space could have been used better. I am glad I did not spend money for the book.
