Creative Play With Children At Risk (Special Order) (Spiral bound)
Creative Play with Children at Risk clearly illustrates the importance of play for the developing child and outlines research showing the consequences of the 'non-playing child'. The book provides practical ideas for play for children from birth onward and gives clear descriptions of the application of play techniques with children with special needs. These include children with developmental delay as well as children who have suffered abuse. The book draws attention to the application of using various materials in play and its role in a 'survival' approach, and includes contrasting approaches to play and play therapy and emphasizes the importance of 'preventative play' for healthy development.
