In Prescriptive play therapy: Tailoring interventions for specific childhood problems the process of developing a prescriptive approach is methodically provided with details on incorporating an eclectic toolbox of techniques into the practice of play therapy. The book editors reject single theory models and advocate for a varied framework with the use of customized interventions for clients. They make a case that therapists who utilize only one theory are missing out on other valuable interventions suitable for a wide range of their clients. The introductory chapter includes a useful explanation on the fundamental tenets of prescriptive play therapy by deftly outlining principles and practices. The authors of this first chapter boldly state that if play therapy continues to grow as a discipline, it will be because therapists in the field have embraced prescriptive play therapy as a guiding theory. Included in following chapters are suggestions for gathering information on the client and assessment including case conceptualizations, case vignettes, and specific interventions for multiple presenting issues. Client populations covered include, but are not limited to, those with depression, phobias, trauma, ADHD, ASD, and attachment disorders. Although prescriptive play therapy is presented as a way to incorporate many theories into the playroom, cognitive behavioral approaches appeared to dominate as preferred techniques. The text may be useful for all levels of practitioners working in play therapy and especially for those who may feel limited with the use of one counseling theory.
