The yield of more than forty years of John Allan's clinical work with children-both "normal" children in classrooms and those physically and sexually abused, emotionally neglected, and terminally ill-this book describes different ways to use art in counseling children: through both spontaneous and directed drawing, guided imagery, and active imagination. Rooted in C. G. Jung's theory of the regenerative, self-healing ability of the psyche, Allan's approach is pragmatic, sensitive, and respectful. His clear language and feeling for his cases make the book widely accessible, so that anyone involved with children-parents, teachers, and counselors-will find the ideas immediately useful and encouraging. The wealth of drawings, paintings, and writings by children give us entry to a profound dimension of both their suffering and strength.

If we are to touch the hearts of hurting children, we must enter their world, the world of play. Play therapy honors children by meeting them in their world. Children say with toys what they have difficulty saying with words. Toys become the play therapist's tools to help unlock the healing process for wounded children. Whether you are a psychologist, a social worker, a family therapist, a pastoral counselor, a group-home worker, or a children's ministry worker, this book will help you build relationships that minister to the souls of hurting children and bring understanding to the confusion of their pain. Through these nurturing relationships, children will be freed to understand and process emotional pain.

It is increasingly understood that to counsel children and adolescents effectively requires specialized skills: simply adapting techniques developed for adults will not work. Drawing on the work of Bowlby, Winnicott and others, Linda Hopper here gives a brief introduction to the emotional development of young people and shows how play and other creative means can be used to help them to express their inner feelings. In a comprehensive overview of the area, she also discusses issues of difference and identity, the counselling process and ethical issues in counselling children. The author's wide experience of working with children and adolescents shines through in vivid case studies covering a range of clients, contexts and difficulties. Offering a judicious balance of theory and practical discussion, Counselling and Psychotherapy with Children and Adolescents focuses on the essential knowledge needed to work therapeutically with children. It is thus an ideal foundation text for students undertaking training in child counselling, either as part of their initial training or in post-qualification professional development.

Inscapes of the child's world: Jungian 260 The Handbook of Child Life
Author: Richard H. Thompson
Publisher: Charles C Thomas Publisher
Child life is a profession that draws on the insights of history, sociology, anthropology and psychology to serve children and families in many critical stress points in their lives, but especially when they are ill, injured or disabled and encounter the hosts of caregivers and institutions that collaborate to make them well. Children and their families can become overwhelmed by the task of understanding and navigating the healthcare environment and continue to face challenges through their daily encounters. It is the job of child life professionals to provide care and guidance in these negotiations to serve as culture brokers, interpreters of the healthcare apparatus to family and child and the child to medical professionals. Despite the best efforts to provide quality, sensitive psychosocial care to children and their families, they remain vulnerable to lingering aftereffects. The goal of this revised edition is to help prepare child life specialists to deliver the highest level of care to children and families in the context of these changing realities. Each chapter has been substantially revised and two new chapters have been added. This book will be a valuable resource for not only child life specialists but also nurses, occupational and recreational therapists, social workers and other hospital personnel.

"The Art of Art Therapy, first published in 1984, was written primarily to help art therapists first define and then refine a way of thinking about their work. This new edition contains thoroughly revised material that reflects the significant expansion of the field of art therapy in the period since the book was first written. Specifically, this second edition invites the reader to first consider closely the main elements of the discipline embodied in its name: The Art Part and The Therapy Part. Chapters dealing with each of these topics comprise the first two sections of the book. The third section, The Interface, contains chapters dealing with putting the two together in an integrated way, i.e. Doing Art Therapy (step-by-step) and doing it Artistically. Included with this edition is a DVD containing chapter related video content"--Provided by publisher.

Sandplay in Three Voices provides a unique and engaging understanding of sandplay - a growing modality of psychotherapy. Emerging out of informal conversations among three senior therapists, it examines the essential aspects of sandplay therapy as well as the depth and breadth of the human psyche. The book is organized into eight sections covering eight of the most important topics in sandplay - Therapist, Silence, Child, Mother, Self, Shadow, Chaos, and Numinous. Each section begins with a trialogue discussing theory, history and practice of sandplay in that area. The trialogues allow the reader to witness three senior therapists addressing and attempting to understand the many layers of each topic, and reflect their agreements and disagreements as they reveal their individual thoughts on, and personal experiences of, the themes they discuss. Each trialogue is followed by a set of solo presentations in which each author focuses on her contribution, and on the role of each topic in sandplay. Illustrated by original clinical examples, this unique approach addresses issues of concern to analysts and other psychotherapists. Its basic orientation makes it of particular value in the study, practice and teaching of sandplay therapy.

Born prematurely, and later diagnosed with a life-threatening childhood illness, Ms. De Pietro spent most of her early years in hospitals. Surviving several near death experiences had a lasting effect on her. It was there in the hospital at the child life center that she was first introduced to art. She knew from then on that she would dedicate her life to being an artist. After studying at the School of Visual Arts and later at the Paris American Academy, she went on to have a fruitful career as a painter. As time went on she realized that cloistering herself in her studio painting did not address her own suppressed emotions which had caused her to seek refuge there in the first place. Furthermore, it didn’t allow her to give back to others who were suffering. Taking a sabbatical from painting to study art therapy, Ms. De Pietro set out to confront her own complexes and in the process help those in need. She learned how to use the creative process to reach those who experienced trauma and abuse. She recognized that you cannot run and hide from past trauma because the past will come and find you. What is hidden in our shadow selves is what keeps us confined and doomed to repeat the patterns of abuse. It is only by confronting the truth of what happened in the past that helps us shed the shroud of secrecy that keeps us spellbound in shame and guilt. ”We all have stories. We all have had pain and suffering in our lives, some more than others. If we keep our stories locked up and hidden they will become a heavy burden, and cause us only more grief. We can learn from our past when we step back and take a long hard look, and realize that these traumatic experiences don’t define us. We learn more from our struggles and misfortunes than we do from our accomplishments. When we let go of our guilt, shame, fear and loneliness, we can make room for the good stuff, like joy, and love. Follow the stories and you will find the truth hidden in between the lines”.
