Child-Centered Play Therapy Workbook: A Self-Directed Guide for Professionals (cover)

Research Press Publishers is pleased to announce the publication of Child-Centered Play Therapy Workbook: A Self-Directed Guide for Professionals. This indispensable workbook successfully combines the foundational content needed to orient play therapists to the child-centered approach with an engaging series of reflective and experiential activities designed to help develop therapeutic competence.

The authors Jodi Ann Mullen and June M. Rickli have created materials that reinforce and enhance trainings, coursework, and clinical experiences. As the authors note, “In child-centered play therapy the relationship is the key.” The child-centered approach is designed to help children heal, grow, and change.

“This important workbook will help the professional understand the culture of childhood, communicate empathy, and build trust by accepting the natural self-expression of children at play.”

—Judy Parkinson,
President, Research Press Publishers
