This practical, user-friendly manual shows mental health professionals how to implement play therapy with adolescents and adults and how to conceptualize client struggles using a wealth of creative approaches.

Creative Play Therapy for Adolescents and Adults follows an accessible seven-stage process for professionals to address clients’ core needs and establish an empathic therapeutic relationship. The book charts the stages of play therapy and explores a range of expressive arts including art, drama, dance, writing, and sand play, and the key materials needed for each. It also considers additional aspects of play therapy including resistance, spirituality, and self-care. Filled with techniques, skills, and case studies to help demystify complex client work, the book outlines an easy-to-follow treatment protocol for healing and resolution.
