“This third volume is a compendium of creative therapeutic techniques for use with children, youth, and families. Seasoned therapists, as well as beginners, will find new ways of communicating therapeutic content in developmentally sensitive ways. The book’s user-friendly format helps clinicians match interventions to specific treatment goals and serves as a welcome addition to the field.”
--Paris Goodyear-Brown, LCSW, RPT-S
“Liana Lowenstein has gathered a wonderful array of activities to use with children, youth, and families in therapy. It is indeed a creative collection of practical and engaging ideas from therapists from around the world who know what works. The age suitability guides, sectional divisions and clear activity outlines makes this an immensely and immediately usable resource.”
--Jacki Short, M,Ed.(Adult Ed.) MAPS
“I love this Third volume of Assessment and Treatment Activities for Children, Adolescents and Families—it is an excellent resource when working in a focused manner with clients. If you are a clinician that utilizes expressive art activities, games, or varied modalities, you are sure to find many ideas in this excellent resource.”
“In this book, Liana Lowenstein has gathered together more useful assessment and treatment activities from different practitioners. Like the other books in her series, this book is full of creative and playful interventions to engage and assist children in therapy. The activities are set out within a framework, providing the practitioner with clear information about who the activity is appropriate for, the materials and instructions required to undertake the activity and reflective discussions to further clarify the process of the activity. A great resource for Play Therapists, Therapists, Counsellors and Therapeutic Practitioners.”

Liana’s favorite things
In the spirit of Oprah, my November eblast will feature a listing of my favorite things. Unlike Oprah, this will not be a listing of the latest high-tech gadgets, gourmet foods, or bathing products, but rather, it will be a list of my favorite child and family therapy books, therapeutic games and products, children’s books, counseling techniques, and other mental health resources. I am open to suggestions so please send me your favorites. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org under subject heading: Favorite Things.
