Play diagnosis and assessment( Book )

19 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plato once observed that you can learn more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation. Nowhere is the truth of this aphorism more in evidence than in the case of children. It is through play- the chief occupation of the child- that children begin to make sense of the world around them. Through play they develop motor and cognitive skills, work out difficult emotional puzzles, and begin the arduous process of socialization. Offering an impressive array of papers by nearly fifty authorities in the field, this book is divided into six parts, covering the full range of practical and theoretical concerns. Following a logical progression, it begins with a section covering developmental play scales for normal children, including infants and preschoolers, as well as older children. The second and largest section is devoted to diagnostic play scales. Included here are scales for the evaluation of children with a variety of cognitive, behavioral and/or emotional disorders.-- Book Jacket

The Therapeutic powers of play by Charles E Schaefer( Book )

21 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Play therapy has been the most popular form of child therapy for the past fifty years, but the underlying curative elements have remained mysterious. This pioneering book provides a unique understanding of the process of play therapy by highlighting the therapeutic forces contained in it, such as catharsis, abreaction, self-expression, self-efficacy, role playing, and attachment formation. Clarification of the basic mechanisms of change in play therapy will lead to greater effectiveness for play therapists of all orientations. Jack L. Herman writes:. "Erik Erikson, quoting William Blake, the eighteenth century mystical poet and artist, tells us that the child has his toys and the old man has his reasons, and that these are the fruits of the two seasons. Charles Schaefer, the eminent author and editor of books on child psychotherapy from an eclectic, pragmatic standpoint, addresses children's natural special aptitude and facility in using their toys and play to express, communicate, and work through their problems by playing them out in the language of play. "Comprehensive, broad and deep, analytic and penetrating, a subject long debated but never clarified in such exquisite detail, this book by Schaefer and his contributors is something to be studied by every child psychotherapist. Schaefer addresses a subject that has begun to be considered in adult psychotherapy, namely, what might be the curative factors (Frank, Slipp, Rothstein, Meissner). Could there be a common thread of curative factors in adult and child psychotherapy especially observable in the child's play itself? Here Schaefer has developed an intriguing approach, more integrative than simply eclectic. "Do such seemingly diverse forms of play therapy as psychoanalytic, child centered, relationship, behavioral, cognitive, and social learning contain certain common therapeutic factors, since they all rely on the medium of spontaneous play as the child's main mode of self-expression and communication? What is there about child's play, qua play, that may be inherently therapeutic for the child, and what methods and techniques can capitalize on and maximize these factors? "Schaefer and his fourteen contributors, all experts in their particular understanding of basic facets of play, have identified fourteen therapeutic components of children's play that regularly appear in the play therapy setting. Special features of these presentations are vivid case illustrations. Read them and discover the practical uses of the power of play."
