    My mom wrote this book in 1978 and it's still in print and translated into 14 languages. It's changed millions of lives. Fun easy reading for anyone interested in children (or your own inner child) and essential reading for anyone working with children, especially therapists. This book has changed the lives of perhaps millions of children and adolescents. It's available (among other places) at vsof.org.

    An excellent blend of gestalt and play therapy. I refer back to this book time and time again when I'm looking for a new way to help kids open up in our sessions together. Violet Oaklander combines years of experience with her own stories which makes this book not only interesting, but fun to read as well.

    This is an amazing resource. Oaklander presents dozens of avenues for those who wish to explore the vast universe that is the psyche of a child. She goes gently, but with playful curiosity. It is a joy to read about her ideas and put them into practice.

    This is a very helpful and practical guide to beginning children's play therapy. The author offers so many suggestions and examples on how to do play therapy and different mediums to utilize (painting, clay, music, toys, sand trays, senses, etc). She does an excellent job of demonstrating how various techniques could be used by giving tons of examples of scenarios, pictures, questions, and children that she's worked with. This book gave me an excellent idea of what play therapy can look like. Thi This is a very helpful and practical guide to beginning children's play therapy.

This book gave me an excellent idea of what play therapy can look like. This book was also an interesting introduction to Gestalt therapy, something I know little about. Most of the scenarios and examples that the author presented had strong Gestalt influences. Many examples utilized the empty chair technique and the author demonstrated how to combine that with playing (and how to make that seem natural in various situations).

    It's got solid suggestions, and I would certainly send my hypothetical children to her for therapy. I'll keep this book around for suggestions and inspiration. Yet the reading really dragged for me. I did a lot of skimming.....and I wish I liked the book more than I did.

    Great book that's rich with details of lots of creative techniques to reach children's hearts and minds in therapy and outside of therapy. She provides the exercises, as well as the prompts she uses to help kids explore. A big focus on using imagination, visualization and prompting kids gently to get to their own life stories through imaginative play.

    Great book for people who want to understand children and for those who work with children. For all therapists, not only Gestalt ones. Incredible simple in approaching a complex subject, it gives you courage to follow your instincts in getting closer to the children in your life.
