Here is a comprehensive guide to the most effective and dynamic childhood intervention available to counselors, therapists, teachers, psychologists, and anyone who works with kids. This hands-on resource applies play therapy theory to a wide variety of group settings and gives therapists insight into treating special populations including sibling groups, children who have been abused, and children who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Enter a child’s world of communication with twenty-five of the country’s leading play therapy experts as they guide you through a myriad of group play therapy approaches, issues, and techniques. The Handbook of Group Play Therapy gives therapists the tools they need to help children as they experience the exhilaration, fear, joy, and frustration in discovering the world around them as they learn about themselves and others.

“The authors have pinpointed a dynamic and developing area of therapeutic play. . . . a very valuable resource in working with children.”

—LOUISE GUERNEY, professor emerita, The Pennsylvania State University

“This masterful book brings together leaders in the field of child therapy. Sweeney and Homeyer’s wisdom enchants, beguiles, nourishes, teaches, and inspires.”
—BEVERLY JAMES, author of Treating Traumatized Children and Guidelines for Treatment of Attachment-Trauma Problems in Children
