Play Therapy with Traumatized Children: A Prescriptive Approach

By Paris Goodyear-Brown

This book takes the therapist on a journey from the beginning to the end when working with children who have experienced trauma. The author introduces the model, Flexibly Sequential Play Therapy (FSPT), which integrates non-directive play therapy and directive approaches, as well as, to provide concrete techniques and case studies to illustrate.

Participants will:

  1. Develop an understanding of the Flexibly Sequential Play Therapy (FSPT) model that integrates non-directive and directive approaches.
  2. Learn how to create a safe place for trauma processing, enhance a child’s adaptive coping strategies, maximize the power of play, create a developmentally-sensitive trauma narrative and use termination to make positive meaning of the post-trauma self.
  3. Explore strategies to integrate parents and caregivers in the child’s therapeutic process.
  4. Through case studies, learn creative, practical and easily replicable play-based interventions that can be used to guide the child’s treatment from the beginning, middle and end.
