Play in Family Therapy


Product Description

Published USA, 2016 (2nd edition)
This book, now completely revised, has helped therapists integrate play therapy and family therapy techniques in clinical practice. Eliana Gil demonstrates a broad range of verbal and nonverbal strategies for engaging all family members - including those who are ambivalent toward therapy - and tailoring interventions for different types of presenting problems. Numerous case examples illustrate ways to effectively use puppets, storytelling, art making, the family play genogram, drama and other expressive techniques with children, adolescents and their parents. The author offers specific guidance for becoming a more flexible, creative practitioner and shows how recent advances in neuroscience support her approach. Photographs of client artwork are included.
