In Group Filial Therapy (GFT), therapists train parents to conduct play sessions with their own children to help meet children's therapeutic needs, and to transfer appropriate skills to family life. Based on parents' application of Child-Centred Play Therapy, taught and supervised by filial therapists, this evidence-based method is highly effective for working with families from diverse backgrounds and locations. This book provides an accessible guide to the theory and practice of GFT, and for the first time offers step-by-step guidelines for implementing the GFT program developed by Dr Guerney, the co-creator of Filial Therapy. Important practical considerations are addressed by Dr Guerney and Dr Ryan, such as how to determine the composition of groups and the duration of programs, and how to conduct Filial Therapy intakes. The facilitative attitudes and skills needed to be an effective Filial Therapy group leader are also described, and comprehensive instructions for implementing Dr Guerney's 20-week model of GFT are provided. The book closes with examples of how the program may be adapted to meet the needs of special groups. Replete with examples and dialogues bringing to life the group process, this definitive guide will enable therapists already familiar with the method, as well as those wishing to learn it, to maximise the fulfilment of therapeutic goals for participating families. Practitioners in mental health, social services and counselling, as well as parenting experts, play and filial therapists and therapists in training will find that this book expands and enriches the services they can offer their clients.

"This is a particularly challenging time in the supervision of child psychotherapy: The demand for mental health services for children has never been greater, yet evidence is accumulating that many therapies practiced in community settings are ineffective. In Helping Others Help Children: Clinical Supervision of Child Psychotherapy, T. Kerby Neill examines the critical role of supervision in this survey of practices and procedures and explores promising new child therapies. The book revisits child therapy for contemporary demands by presenting a cross-section of supervision practices in child psychotherapy, which include some of the most promising new child therapies. Readers will find rich discussions on dealing with supervision of play therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy with children, including techniques associated with each therapy and suggestions for the observation and training of supervisees. In addition, ethics in supervision and cross-cultural supervision are addressed. This text will empower supervisors, students, and practitioners to meet the challenges found in all therapeutic environments, including urban mental health centers and schools"--Introduction.

Play Therapy offers children an opportunity to find a haven from their woes while discovering ways to understand their lives and survive the pressures they experience. In this outstanding compendium, enriched by the author's perspective of years of dedicated work in the field, Dr. Dessie Oliver James reviews the literature on theoretical, technical, and practical considerations in the play therapy arena. Her book will advance the learning curve of the professional at every level of development.
