“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.”
“Wow! Liana Lowenstein has done it again with her third and final volume of Assessment and Treatment Activities for Children, Adolescents, and Families. Lowenstein takes the practical and makes it applicable in her 208 page compilation of over 70 innovative activities. The techniques cover a wide range in each of the topic areas, making it a very useful manual. Each volume is full of creative and engaging activities for children, adolescents and families and this volume tops it off!”

Important message regarding fraudulent misuse of my training materials
It recently came to my attention that another therapist plagiarized my work. My entire Sexual Abuse Training Handout (over 70 PowerPoint slides) was copied verbatim, my name was removed from the handouts, and the individual presented the material as being her own original work during the training sessions she teaches (and sells) online. Of course, the unauthorized use of my material is illegal under copyright law, represents a serious ethical violation and is not the professional behavior I have learned to expect in our field—not to mention that fraudulent misrepresentation is a crime!
Many of us grant permission for mental health practitioners to utilize the material from publications and from training handouts for direct clinical work with clients. However, let’s be reminded that permission for any use of the material from publications or training handouts for any other purpose, must be requested in writing from the author to get appropriate approval. We all need to continue to appreciate and respect each other’s work and execute ethical standards of practice!
As a result of the above, I feel compelled to alert my colleagues to remain vigilant regarding their own professional intellectual property. Please continue to place copyright statements on all of your work and verbally remind attendees that presentations, handouts and all professional material remains the exclusive property of the presenter, even after a training event has ended.
Favorite Therapeutic Activities for Children, Adolescents, and Families: Practitioners Share Their Most Effective Interventions is a creative collection of assessment and treatment techniques developed by some of my colleagues. You can download this eBook at no charge by clicking here.
