This book describes the nuts and bolts of play therapy and provides fifteen of the most popular materials and activities practitioners can use with children today.

Play therapy has rapidly evolved into one of the most popular and effective models of child psychotherapy today. Play lets children express their thoughts and feelings through creative activity, and respond to their cognitive, emotional, and social developmental needs.

Play modalities constitute the 'nuts and bolts' of play therapy practice. They are the basic materials and activities that clients engage in during play therapy treatments.

This book offers 15 distinct modalities for play therapy. Some are classics in the field, including sand, block, and role play, while some are relatively new approaches such as electric game play and virtual reality play.

It is important for child therapists to become competent in multiple modalities in order to tailor interventions to specific disorders, to combine modalities to strengthen an intervention, or to offer a child their preferred play model.
