This edited volume seeks to highlight the development of play therapy in various countries and cities in Asia. The editors discuss how mostly Western play-therapy approaches are adapted for use in Asian countries. Contributors to the volume, who are experts in using play therapy to work with clients from their own cultures, offer unique discussions using a case-study approach to integrate the theory and practice of play therapy across different Asian countries. Having existed for years in the West, play therapy is still in its early stage of development in most Asian countries, including mainland China, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia. This is the first play-therapy book written by experts from specific Asian cultures for practitioners and students who are working in the mental-health field for Asian groups. Each chapter first describes play-therapy development in that particular culture and then uses a case study to illustrate how play therapy can be adapted to suit specific cultural beliefs and environments in order to connect parents with their children or to address clients' needs.
