For many vulnerable children, the idea of talking to an adult about their experiences and feelings can be a daunting prospect. This book demonstrates how the introduction of playfulness when working with neglected or abused children helps to build a trusting relationship by openly engaging with the child's world. The detailed descriptions of activities are supported by extensive information about the world of children and young people and how to prepare the ground for effective direct work.
