Introducing a practical model of play therapy for traumatized
children

Some of the most rewarding work a therapist can do is help a
child recover from a traumatic event. But where to begin? A growing
body of play therapy literature offers many specific techniques and
a variety of theoretical models; however, many therapists are still
searching for a comprehensive model of treatment that incorporates
solid theoretical constructs with effective play therapy
interventions.


Clinicians have long recognized that trauma therapy is not just
a matter of techniques but a journey with a beginning, middle, and
end. In a pioneering contribution to the field, Play Therapy
with Traumatized Children: A Prescriptive Approach
, the author
codifies the process in her model, Flexibly Sequential Play Therapy
(FSPT). Integrating non-directive and directive approaches, this
components-based model allows for the uniqueness of each child to
be valued while providing a safe, systematic journey towards trauma
resolution. The FSPT model demystifies play-based trauma treatment
by outlining the scope and sequence of posttraumatic play therapy
and providing detailed guidance for clinicians at each step of the
process.


Dramatically demonstrating the process of healing in case
histories drawn from fifteen years of clinical practice with
traumatized children, Play Therapy with Traumatized Children
addresses:




  • Creating a safe place for trauma processing




  • Augmenting the child's adaptive coping strategies and soothing
    his or her physiology




  • Correcting the child's cognitive distortions




  • Ensuring that caregivers are facilitative partners in
    treatment




  • Inviting gradual exposure to trauma content through play




  • Creating developmentally sensitive trauma narratives




  • Using termination to make positive meaning of the post-trauma
    self
