Cultural issues in play therapy by Eliana Gil( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Filled with illustrative case material, this volume establishes a nuanced framework for thinking about the cultural context of play and play therapy. Also included is a special chapter on art therapy. Experienced practitioners examine how cultural factors influence children's behavior, the ideas and feelings they associate with different activities, and the responses of children and parents to particular interventions. Highlighting specific issues to consider when working with African American, Latino, Native American, and Asian American children, chapters explore cultural norms related to pretend play, games, expressing feelings, personal space, and communication. In addition, the volume addresses the social stressors that many clients face, including racism, poverty, and acculturation challenges, and demonstrates ways to help children and families cope. Throughout, emphasis is given to the need to incorporate cultural knowledge into assessment and treatment planning, while steering clear of overgeneralization or stereotyping. An appendix furnishes useful details on where to obtain multicultural toys, games, and art materials."

It offers important new insights for child and school psychologists, social workers, play and art therapists, counselors, family therapists, and child psychiatrists, along with students and trainees in these fields."--Jacket
