From the Publisher"Remarkable for its breadth and depth, The Therapist’s Notebook for Children and Adolescents, 2nd edition, is the indispensable reference for play and expressive child and family therapies. Sori, Hecker, and Bachenberg offer a treasure trove of play strategies for virtually any child and adolescent issue. The second edition is mostly new and thoroughly updated. The strategies can be adapted to most theoretical orientations and all are practical and field tested. If I had to choose one book for my play therapy and family therapy libraries, this would be it!"
—Douglas H. Sprenkle, PhD, professor of marriage and family therapy emeritus, Purdue University
"The Therapist’s Notebook for Children and Adolescents, 2nd edition, contains a potpourri of innovative techniques and strategies for conducting individual, family, and group psychotherapy. The notebook is transtheoretical in nature, so it will appeal to therapists from diverse orientations and disciplines who wish to broaden and strengthen their knowledge and skills. Highly recommended!"
—Charles E. Schaefer, PhD, RPT-S, professor emeritus of psychology, Fairleigh Dickinson University, and cofounder and director emeritus of the Association for Play Therapy
"In the updated edition of this classic book, Sori and colleagues once again have pulled together a treasure chest full of innovative and inspired ideas to treat children and families. This book will spark readers’ creativity and is an absolute must have for practitioners and for training programs in counseling, play therapy, and family therapy. Chapters illustrate playful ways to engage children and families in the therapeutic process, and they also address many serious issues facing today’s youths and families, including many new exercises and handouts on bullying, suicidal ideation, ADHD, autism, adolescents and sex, and cultural issues. This book is resplendent with field-tested ideas written by some of the masters in the fields of family therapy and play therapy. A brilliant book to refer to whenever you need information and inspiration!"
—Jon Carlson, PsyD, EdD, Distinguished Professor of Adlerian Psychology, Adler University
"The second edition of The Therapist’s Notebook for Children and Adolescents definitely exceeds the first. It is an exceptional guide for working with children. I strongly recommend it for those who work with children and adolescents and believe it should be required reading in all clinical training programs."
—Joseph L. Wetchler, PhD, professor of marriage and family therapy at Purdue University Calumet and coeditor of An Introduction to Marriage and Family Therapy, 2nd ed.
