red triangleMy Writing

NEW! Together with school social worker Kerri Fisher, I just finished writing an article about using my directive group games with kindergartners and second-graders in a local school. I met separately with two groups of children for 10 and 12 weeks in 2009 and 2010. Both teachers and parents completed before and after ratings of the childrens behaviors and social emotional learning skills. I invite you read our study results in Play Groups for Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) in an Urban Elementary School (PDF 243 KB)

To prepare for my 2011 Hong Kong workshop, I summarized 16 research articles from a literature search, Annotated Bibliography: Play Therapy, Child Maltreatment, and Effective Treatments. (PDF 127 KB)

Several years ago I described my very interesting therapy case, Selective Mutism: A Case Study of a 10 Year Old Korean Boy and Applicable Play Therapy Techniques. (PDF 116 KB)
