Mindfulness-based play-family therapy is introduced as useful for healing all family members in these anxious, fast-paced times. After explaining influences on MBPFT including mindfulness meditation, traditional child play therapy, and Mary Mahler’s theory of stages of early child development, Higgins-Klein, the director of a counseling and postgraduate training center in Philadelphia, presents MBPFT’s framework, processes, and techniques. The book includes a chapter-length case study, sample forms and questionnaires, and information on courses and certificate programs offered at the Family & Play Therapy Center.
Mindfulness-Based Play-Family Therapy
This book presents a new and comprehensive framework for helping children through play therapy that is set within the context of the family. It incorporates principles of mindfulness, interpersonal neurobiology, early childhood development, and family dynamics into a system that can use either spontaneous play or directed play according to need.
