Activities for Children in Therapy provides the mental health professional with a wide variety of age-appropriate activities which are simultaneously fun and therapeutic for the five-to-twelve-year-old troubled child. These activities have been designed as enjoyable games that both the therapist and child can play in the context of therapy. This latest edition of the text takes much of the hard work out of planning and implementing this therapy with children. The activities are designed to build a significant child/therapist relationship, surface problem areas, aid in resolving those problems and provide a healthy closure to the therapy relationship. This new edition also provides a comprehensive listing of books with other therapeutic intervention ideas, bibliotherapy materials that compliment the activity chapters of this book, assessment scales for evaluating youngsters at the onset of treatment, and a sample child assessment for individual therapy. It will be of use to professionals who provide counseling to children, such as social workers, psychologists, guidance counselors, speech/language pathologists, art therapists, and other related professionals.
