Introduction to Developmental Playtherapy: Playing and Health

by Sue Jennings
£19.99   paperback  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (1999)

Introduction to Developmental Playtherapy: Playing and Health by Sue Jennings Developing the basic principles of her model of play therapy, Sue Jennings has written a stimulating book that will provide inspiration for those new to the discipline, whilst providing a fresh and exciting approach for established practioners. She argues that creative play is essential for children's health. Drawing on examples from her own professional experience, she discusses how play can help resolve issues by allowing possible solutions to be explored safely, thus encouraging flexibility of response. She explores the cultural background and theory of using play as a therapeutic tool with children and how play can communicate to the therapist what the child needs to tell. Innovative and accessible, her book breaks fertile new ground for play therapy.
