From leading expert Eliana Gil, this book provides child clinicians with essential knowledge and tools for evaluating and working with posttraumatic play. Such play, which is often repetitive and disturbing, may help resolve traumatic experiences--but can also become toxic. The book guides the clinician to determine what is going on with a given child and intervene sensitively and effectively. Evocative case material is interwoven with up-to-date information on the developmental impact of trauma and ways to facilitate children's natural reparative capacities. A reproducible assessment checklist to help clinicians differentiate between useful and dangerous posttraumatic play can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.

She is also Director of Starbright Training Institute for Child and Family Play Therapy. Dr. Gil has worked in the field of child abuse prevention and treatment since 1973.

Originally from Guayaquil, Ecuador, Dr. Gil is bilingual and bicultural.

Review:

"This groundbreaking contribution by one of the preeminent leaders in the child trauma field is practical, highly accessible, and invaluable. Gil’s extensive knowledge and experience are evident throughout, especially in the detailed case illustrations that demonstrate specific, innovative techniques and systemic interventions for addressing posttraumatic play. The book comprehensively explores important issues such as pacing, clinical directiveness, and enhancement of the therapeutic relationship. It should be required reading for all therapists who work with traumatized young children."--Cheryl Lanktree, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California

"Therapists will treasure this remarkable book from a remarkable play therapist. Gil brilliantly conceptualizes posttraumatic play and its treatment. This work is sorely needed, given that many available therapies are ill suited for children with these types of developmental challenges. Gil points to the convergence of research (including neuroscience) informing us of the core elements of trauma treatment. The book discusses how to use play, art, and other expressive techniques in a relationally rich context to support a child's recovery in mind, body, and spirit."--Richard L. Gaskill, EdD, LCP, RPT-S, Sumner Mental Health Center, Wellington, Kansas

"This jewel of a book devotes much-needed attention to posttraumatic play, an underexplored but relatively common issue among traumatized children. It features clear, compelling descriptions and clinical tools. Gil's wise guidance, case examples, and practical strategies make this book an essential reference that will benefit experienced child-focused therapists as well as students."--Janine Shelby, PhD, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles

“Gil is a celebrated author and clinician....Posttraumatic Play in Children is a straightforward and succinct book....Gil quickly engages readers with an exploration of the impact of complex trauma on children, with characteristics and clinical presentations of posttraumatic play to orient the reader. She then discusses relevant empirical and conceptual developments in the field of trauma-focused play therapy....A remarkable feature of this book is how seamlessly Gil integrates different theoretical orientations such as trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapies, posttraumatic play therapy, and school-based play therapy....This book is highly recommended for therapists of all orientations working with children who have experienced trauma and a valuable resource for graduate-level trainees and experienced therapists looking for innovative ways to conceptualize posttraumatic play....This book is an extremely useful and instructive addition to the field of trauma-based treatment that moves the field forward in astutely assessing and serving our children and adolescents.”, PsycCRITIQUES Published On: 2017-07-10
