While knowledge of play therapy is spreading more and more, most people are not as familiar with the workings of this therapeutic intervention as they are with standard psychotherapy. In fact, I’m willing to bet that one of the most common questions play therapists are asked is “What exactly is play therapy?” And any practitioner knows that it’s important that both the child and parent receive an accurate and comprehensive answer. It is with this in mind that Jane Annunziata created her book A Child’s First Book About Play Therapy, an excellent tool for explaining, and getting the most out of, the play therapy process. In this interview, Annunziata discuss the aim of her book and the many ways it can be used to facilitate an open and productive therapeutic experience. Enjoy!
