It is rare to find a single volume where such an abundance of information is presented so concisely.
Richard A. Gardner
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.
