"The absence of detailed information about how to work with parents has been a missing link in play therapy literature. This book fills in the gap and will make the play therapist's professional life with parents less stressful, more efficient, and more effective, the result of a sensitive, caring, and insightful parent-therapist relationship."
-Garry Landreth, Director, Center for Play Therapy, University of North Texas, Denton
"The book starts with initial contact with parents, discusses developmental issues and then identifies legal and ethical issues of therapy. Medical issues in therapy are explored, followed by parent profiles, working with angry parents, meetings between parents and therapists, and a good discussion of special issues."
-The Rev. Dr. Richard B. Gilbert," Resources Hotline
