About this Item

373 Pages. Cover has very slight curve at front edge. Gift inscription by author on front endpaper. No other defects noted and interior text pages are flawless. Touch is essential for life, and what Viola Brody calls capable touching is the core of developmental play therapy, building both the self of the hurt child and his or her appreciation of the nurturing other. It thus makes way for dialogue between them and - as the dialogue becomes an organizing force for the child's behaving and relating - facilitates healing and maturation. In recognition of the crucial importance of knowing how to be present with a child in a reparative role, Dr. Brody incorporates training in developmental play into the body of her book to provide therapists, teachers, and other helping professionals with the experience they need to understand and practice capable touching. Transcripts of actual sessions with a range of differently disturbed children, complete with interpretative comments by the author, animate and amplify Dr. Brody's ideas and instantly engage the reader in the dialogue.
