NEW Play Therapy Basic Training Workbook

"As Director of Antioch's Play Therapy Certificate, I can say this new book Play Therapy Basic Training Workbook will be foundational in the development of therapists striving to learn child centered play therapy from step one to termination. It is well researched and written, easily becoming a standard text for those graduate students and licensed individuals striving to become child centered play therapists. Thank you Jodi for a much needed text to develop future play therapists in CCPT."

NEW Play Therapy Basic Training Workbook

"This workbook intertwines the culture of childhood with Axline’s Eight Principles to enhance and clarify the importance of the therapist’s ability to show respect and provide deep empathy for the child’s development and perspective. It provides concise and comprehensive information and easy-to-use exercises specifically written to supplement teaching and supervision of CCPT skills (structuring sessions, tracking, limit setting, responding to questions, reflecting feelings) and offers guidance for common challenges in CCPT sessions. Dr. Mullen shares useful resources and reproducible handouts to use for weekly parent and teacher feedback, treatment planning, and video self-supervision. This workbook offers insight and encouragement to those beginning to learn the value and healing power of CCPT."

Raising Freakishly Well-Behaved Kids

"Raising Freakishly Well Behaved Kids is a sure-fire way to enhance your parenting skills, tactics and fun. Dr. Mullen is knowledgeable and has years of experience working (and playing through play therapy) with children of all ages, but she writes to parents in her book as a parent. This is a book full of easy-to-use parenting ideas and Ah, moments. It is not a study or lecture. I looked forward to reading a segment each night before bed, reflecting on my own day as a parent. Most importantly, it does not induce panic, but rather imparts hope for the best possible relationship you could have with your children. A must read!"

Raising Freakishly Well-Behaved Kids

"Easy 5 stars!!! As a child counselor I am familiar with these principles but as a brand new first time Mom I’m reading this with a different purpose! Jodi’s way of story telling about her teachers (her child clients and own children) help make these essential parenting principles incredibly relatable! I also love how Jodi truly is an expert but in this book speak to the audience in a way of admitting her own mistakes as a parent and normalizes struggles. This parenting book is a great guide on how to treat children with respect yet also provide them with emotional safety. Using these principles strengthens the attachment between parent and child. I also as a new mom love the interactive and reflective parts of the book!! Thank you for this, I’m certain this book is something I’ll refer to throughout the years!"
