Theraplay (R) - The Practitioner's Guide Paperback / softback



The Definitive Guide to Theraplay (R) for Practitioners, officially endorsed by the Theraplay (R) InstituteTheraplay is an intervention that focuses on enhancing the connection, trust and joy between a child and a parent.

It involves interactive, playful activities using simple face-to-face reciprocal interactions, and involves using all of the senses, including rhythm, movement and touch.

This comprehensive guide outlines the theory, reflection, and skill development of the practitioner - the true power house of Theraplay.

By maintaining a focus on practice throughout, embedding theory into practice examples, it brings the spirit of Theraplay to life.

Part 1 covers the key principles of the intervention; Part 2 addresses Theraplay in Practice: how to use the Marschak Interaction Method (MIM), how to set up a room and choose activities and considerations for working with different client groups; Part 3 encourages the reader to engage in their own development and the stages involved; and Parts 4 and 5 provide a wealth of useful resources, checklists, handouts, sample sessions and an up-to-date list of Theraplay activities. Whether you are a Theraplay practitioner, or simply want to find out how this remarkable intervention works, this book is essential reading.
