This book presents a new and comprehensive framework for helping children through play therapy within the context of the family. This experience-based therapeutic model respectfully derives from the best roots of traditional family therapy and play therapy modalities. It incorporates principles of mindfulness, interpersonal neurobiology, early childhood development, and family dynamics into a system that can use either spontaneous play or directed play according to need. In addition to a solid theoretical framework, this book also gives a practical description of the full range of stages from intake to closure. It provides principles and examples of effective intervention, and uses a detailed case study to illustrate essential attributes of therapeutic engagement.
