Volume three presents more innovative and practical assessment and treatment techniques for children, adolescents, and families. When children are referred for therapy, they typically feel anxious and are reluctant to talk directly about their thoughts and feelings. Activities that are creative and play-based can engage children and help them to safely express themselves. The interventions presented in this book aim to capture and sustain children’s interest and motivation in therapy, while helping them express themselves within the context of a safe therapeutic environment.

In this third volume, highly acclaimed author Liana Lowenstein has compiled an impressive collection of techniques from experienced practitioners. Interventions are outlined for engaging, assessing, and treating children of all ages and their families.

This practical book presents activities divided into the following chapters:

  • Engagement and assessment
  • Feelings Expression
  • Social Skills
  • Coping and problem-solving
  • Self-Esteem
  • Termination

Filled with therapeutic games, art activities, stories, and other interventions, this book is an invaluable resource for mental health professionals seeking to add creative techniques to their repertoires.
