This best-selling collection is filled with creative assessment and treatment techniques for use in individual, group, and family settings. The book begins with a variety of engaging assessment activities providing clinicians with diagnostic tools to assist in treatment planning. The remaining four chapters provide activities to help children and teens identify feeling states, cope with emotional difficulties, strengthen interpersonal skills, and enhance self-esteem. The last section of the book describes the graduation ceremony that can be incorporated as part of the child's termination process. Each activity is described within a framework that recommends age suitability, preferred treatment modality, and appropriate stage of treatment. Materials needed to complete the activity are outlined. Several activities include worksheets that may be reproduced for use with clients. The book includes detailed instructions for all activities and a discussion section that further clarifies application and process. Activities are geared to 4-16 year-olds. Mental health professionals and teachers will find this book invaluable.

Review:

Mental health professionals are sure to find a number of creative ideas that they can put right to use in their practice. Highly recommended. ---Charles E. Schaefer, Ph.D

Aptly named, this resource is filled with creative interventions that help our youth to navigate the troubled waters of childhood. Covering topics that range from emotional literacy to self-esteem building, the techniques presented are both practical and playful. The flexible format of the book allows room for interventions to be used for individual, family or group sessions. Mental health professionals who work with children and families will find this a valuable addition to their libraries. ---Paris Goodyear-Brown, LCSW, RPT-S

This work by Liana Lowenstein is the essence of creativity itself. The activities are based on sound developmental principles and grounded in a rich understanding of the psychological issues that children and youth struggle with. The book is written in a clear and accessible format that all those who work with troubled children will find imaginative and inspirational. Truly, a fine addition to the professional bookshelf. - --William S. Rowe, Ph.D.
