Game Play Therapy’s revised third edition (like the previous editions) continues to fill a gap in the literature by offering mental health practitioners the information needed to understand why and how to use this intervention effectively.

- Contains material on the recent advances in the field including information on electronic games and disorder-specific games
- Includes illustrative case studies that explore the process of game therapy
- Reviews the basics of the underlying principles and applications of game therapy
- Offers a wide-range of games with empirical evidence of the effectiveness of game therapy
Written for psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mental health clinicians, the revised third edition of Game Play Therapy offers a guide that shows how to apply game therapy techniques to promote socialization, encourage the development of identity and self-esteem, and help individuals master anxiety.
