Overview

Applications of Family and Group Theraplay is rich in content and practical ideas guided by current research in attachment and neurobiological research. Most chapters are illustrated with a case study, including agendas from beginning, middle, and end sessions with an extensive appendix describing each activity, to help translate theory into practice. Theraplay, a research based therapeutic model that has gained increasing attention worldwide, is described in this book from its theory (based on attachment theory), research, to its underlying dimensions (structure, challenge, engagement, nurture) applied to a wide diversity of populations and formats. The book describes activities that have underlying goals of increasing parental attunement, creating a caring, accepting environment and co-regulating the child. It replicates normal parent/child interactions that are playful, physical, and fun. Applying Theraplay to a wide variety of populations (dysregulated, resistant, aggressive, impulsive, adopted, autistic, traumatized) and cultures (Aboriginals, American, Asian, German, Finnish) is included, as well as integrating Theraplay with other treatment methods. It also describes group Theraplay with father/son dyads and with troubled adolescents and offenders. This book will not only lead to a greater understanding of Theraplay, but will also stretch the reader's skills in the application of this very effective play therapy model.

Editorial Reviews

Athena A. Drewes
A comprehensive compendium covering the gamut on how best to utilize Theraplay. It not only offers coverage on family and group work, but also clearly addresses multicultural approaches, research, special populations and situations, working with parents, and dealing with termination. Each chapter is a gem unto itself, coming alive with case studies and examples.

Given the ever-increasing and alarming rates of autism, trauma, poor parental attachment, and emotional and affect dysregulation in children, Theraplay is needed now more than ever. This excellent resource is a must-have book for both the experienced Theraplay therapist and also clinicians looking to integrate Theraplay and enhance their treatment repertoire. I highly recommend it!

Richard L. Gaskill
Advances in our understanding of the sequential nature of brain development and the impact of trauma on this development have ignited considerable interest in finding therapies that are effective with lower brain region dysfunction. Unfortunately, traditional play therapies are very powerful in treating higher brain level dysfunction but have little impact on brain regions that are unresponsive to language, insight, and logic. In her most recent book, Applications of Family and Group Theraplay, Evangeline Munns has compiled a wonderful assortment of Theraplay techniques and strategies that can greatly assist the neurodevelopmentally sensitive therapist.
Lorie Walton
Applications of Family and Group Theraplay is an informative assembly of chapters from front line Theraplay therapists. The descriptions of activities, as well as details regarding case studies, inform therapists how effective and adaptable Theraplay can be across cultures and with specific client populations. It is sure to become a valuable resource for therapists worldwide as they translate Theraplay’s theory into practice!
Eliana Gil
This book is immediately useful, informative, and from my point of view convincing. Theraplay is gentle, it's practical, it's simple in design, and trusts that legitimate contact can be promoted through specific playful behaviors observed in normative and healthy parent-child relationships. Families present us with real challenges and Theraplay provides real solutions and empowers both parents and clinicians to contribute to the development of positive changes.
