Editorial Reviews

Athena A. Drewes
A wonderful compendium of metaphorical stories intertwined with practical, play-based applications for use in the treatment of sexually abused and neglected children and their families. This unique book offers clinicians practical hands-on tools that deal with a range of PTSD-based topics from self-control and affect modulation to attachment issues and safety. It is a rich treasure trove of unique narratives and applications that is a 'must have' addition for child and play therapists.
George W. Burns
Delightful, transforming, wise stories and practical interventions. This book has exactly what all therapists need to help kids and families deal with those life experiences that kids should never have to deal with.
