Children who experience difficult life events (for example, fostering, long-term illness or the traumatic death of a close adult) may need help in forming and expressing narrations of their experiences, which in turn aid the development of their identity. This book demonstrates how play therapy can be a very appropriate way of facilitating this kind of expression. The work of nine play therapists is detailed, supported by the narratives of children - and some adults - whose imaginative, metaphorical and complex stories emerge during their play therapy sessions. Professionals from many disciplines will find much in this book to further their understanding of children's experiences and understanding of the world.
