For over 50 years, Child-Centered Play Therapy has helped children heal and grow through a therapeutic process that is best suited to children’s development. In play therapy, children are provided an opportunity to communicate, problem solve and develop through the most intuitive process in childhood; play.


The Play Therapy Basic Training Workbook: A guide to learning and living the child centered play therapy philosophy guides budding and seasoned play and child therapists through a philosophical orientation to child-centered play therapy while simultaneously integrating reflective and experiential exercises that are relevant to clinical practice. Readers are engaged in the learning process from start to finish and as a result will witness personal and professional growth with completion of each section.

Some chapter highlights include:

  • Childhood as a culture
  • Stages of child-centered play therapy
  • How to set limits in a play therapy session
  • Is the child ready for termination?
