Item Description...
Children in today's world sometimes undergo traumatic experiences, such as abuse, divorce of parents, loss of a loved one, school problems. Even trained counselors struggle to find ways to help children process their hurts. This book offers a soundly integrated approach that helps counselors enter the child's world--the world of play--to help them heal. Through play-therapy relationships, counselors, social workers, and other children's workers can help children say with toys what they have difficulty saying with words. Toys become the play therapist's tools to help unlock the healing process for the wounded child.
