Practitioners share their most effective techniques.
Volume three presents more innovative and practical assessment and treatment techniques for children, adolescents, and families. When children are referred for therapy, they typically feel anxious and are reluctant to talk directly about their thoughts and feelings. Activities that are creative and play-based can engage children and help them to safely express themselves. The interventions presented in this book aim to capture and sustain children’s interest and motivation in therapy, while helping them express themselves within the context of a safe therapeutic environment
