“I was very impressed with the excellent detailed content of this video. It outlines all of the material covered in a play therapy course. As such, it could be used repeatedly throughout such a course to illustrate phases of play therapy, the variety of child client, and the variety of play modalities available. As she takes the viewer through the opening stages of therapy, establishing alliance, the work of the therapy, and termination and follow-up, Webb illustrates her points with sections of tape showing her interacting with young child clients. Some are receptive, some resistant, some older, some younger, of a variety of races and both genders...On the whole, it's a wonderful video for anyone teaching a graduate course in play therapy and would also be useful in introducing play therapy to parents.”

“This video provides a much-needed illustration of play therapy in action by an experienced clinician. It will help unlock the mystery of play therapy for child mental health professionals and students, as well as for parents and teachers.”

—Charles E. Schaefer, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Fairleigh Dickinson University, co-founder, the Association for Play Therapy

“Nancy Boyd Webb's video is particularly valuable as a teaching tool because it presents actual sessions with children as they represent in play and artwork concerns they would have difficulty representing in words. Clinical students, especially those beginning their internships, often want to see first hand how play therapy works. This video provides an excellent demonstration of how the therapist facilitates the child's play and helps put its meanings into words. In addition, Dr. Webb's introductory and summary comments provide an excellent rationale for the practice of play therapy, as well as a clear orientation for viewing the play sessions. I am looking forward to using this video in my clinical courses.”
