Description

The Healing Power of Play: Working with Abused Children

By Eliana Gil

This book describes how therapists can both facilitate constructive play therapy and intervene in posttraumatic play to help children who have been traumatized by abuse or neglect achieve a positive resolution. Traditional techniques of play therapy are reviewed for their application to this population. Throughout, numerous therapeutic aids are described to enhance the child’s capacity to communicate verbally or symbolically. To help clinicians translate theory into daily practice, the book presents six detailed clinical vignettes that offer step-by-step guidelines for assessment and intervention in different situations of abuse or neglect.

Participants will:

  1. Learn the indicators and impact of child abuse and trauma.
  2. Learn non-directive and directive techniques used in child therapy.
  3. Understand the factors involved in planning and applying child therapies when working with abused children.
  4. Become familiar with the use of directive and non-directive play therapy techniques as applied in several different case studies: neglect, sexual abuse, multiple trauma, hospitalization and chronic abuse.
