Review

Play Therapy with Abused Children is a text that presents a powerful way of working with a particular group of children. Cattanach uses the theory and practice illustrated to make the reader aware of the negative experiences that these children may bring to the therapeutic play sessions. In doing this, she prepares the reader for the reality of what practitioners encounter within the therapeutic work but also indicates the benfit that the children experience as a consequence of working in this non-directive and playful way. -- Debate Cattanach's style exudes warmth and compassion and has enabled the text to retain its human perspective. but the addition of a subject index makes it far more accessible for those new in this field. The text continues to cover a broad range of topis, from the history and cultural context of play, through to consideration of the fundamentals of play therapy before using case examples to probe different types of child harm within a clinical text. To gain an understanding of the impact of harm on a child and the use of play therapy to aid the child in seeking resolution, this book remains a key introductory text to the field. -- Children & Young People Now This insightful book is a must read for anyone in contact with abused children, Ann Cattanach's practical approach provides a good starting point for carers, adopters, teachers and workers alike. Practising therapists will also gain greatly from the wisdom in these pages. Readers will be struck by the immense inner strength Ann has for herself, in her capacity to come so close to experiences and in understanding and supporting the children's healing. Readers will want to keep this book on their shelf to refer to many times over: Highly recommended. -- Adoption Today The book has become a classic in play therapy and related fields... This book is essential reading for professionals working with abused children. -- Play for Life

In doing this, she prepares the reader for the reality of what practitioners encounter within the therapeutic work but also indicates the benfit that the children experience as a consequence of working in this non-directive and playful way. (Debate)

Cattanach's style exudes warmth and compassion and has enabled the text to retain its human perspective. but the addition of a subject index makes it far more accessible for those new in this field. The text continues to cover a broad range of topis, from the history and cultural context of play, through to consideration of the fundamentals of play therapy before using case examples to probe different types of child harm within a clinical text. To gain an understanding of the impact of harm on a child and the use of play therapy to aid the child in seeking resolution, this book remains a key introductory text to the field. (Children & Young People Now)

This insightful book is a must read for anyone in contact with abused children, Ann Cattanach's practical approach provides a good starting point for carers, adopters, teachers and workers alike. Practising therapists will also gain greatly from the wisdom in these pages. Readers will be struck by the immense inner strength Ann has for herself, in her capacity to come so close to experiences and in understanding and supporting the children's healing.
