Überblick:Pressestimmen 'Clinicians will discover this book inspires and supports their belief in the capacity of all people to find their way to recognition of their competencies--even in settings where the messages from others would declare otherwise.'-- (12/01/2015)'This breakthrough book explores the newest play therapy techniques and interventions offered by experts in the field....The book is rich with new ideas and play therapy methods to facilitate healing and wellness while bolstering the child's intrinsic resources for optimal recovery and growth....If you are looking for a truly exceptional clinically-sound reference guide that offers unique resilience-focused applications for play therapy interventions with children I strongly recommend this for your professional collection. Unlike other offerings in this area this book sets itself apart by design. Far too much of the professional literature is devoted to simply discussing trauma cases. Instead this book focuses on the more positive aspects of the therapeutic equation such as the resilience strength and 'islands of competence' in children as well as their unbelievable optimism and spirit....This one-of-a-kind reference puts theoretical concepts into practice and will no doubt be an asset for anyone involved in play therapy and mental health interventions with children. *****'-- (08/28/2015)'What an amazing book! This book reflects the belief that all children can rebound from significant setbacks and the best way to reach them is through their hands and their hearts making play therapy the ideal treatment modality. Rather than seeking to ameliorate symptoms the practitioners in this book aspire to find nurture and expand children's 'islands of competence.' Even play therapists who have been practicing for years will learn a great deal from the resilience perspective. Chapter 1 alone is worth the price of the entire book.'--Maurice J.
