Windows To Our Children: A Gestalt Therapy Approach to Working with Children and Adolescents
This book has been used by counselors and psychologist since its publication in 1978. It includes examples of therapy sessions with children and adolescents and offers a wealth of examples of the use of therapeutic techniques such as expression through art, clay, poetry, story telling, the sand tray, music and puppets with Gestalt Therapy theory, practice and technique as the underlying framework.
A major section, "Specific Problem Behaviors", explores aggression, anger, the hyperactive child, the withdrawn child, fears, specific stress, conditions, traumatic experiences, physical symptoms, autism, guilt, and self-esteem.
This book crosses cultural boundaries. It has been translated into eleven languages and the original English version has been used extensively in South Africa, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
This book can be a window to the child within you as well as to the children you are with.
