BOOK REVIEWS AND ARTICLES

FOR PARENTS

 

 

the board of gAPT has a longstanding practice of providing articles and book reviews which it believes to be useful to parents, and the general public.  in the past, many articles have been published in our newsletter playnotes. they are included below and/or on our companion page for professionals.  the purpose is to provide a library of such materials for future reference and research. 

 

we plan to expand this page substantially and have asked leading authors of play therapy articles to allow us to include their work on this page.  as the amount of material grows, we expect to divide it into categories.  we ask for your input. we would greatly appreciate your suggestions as to materials you would like to see us add here.  please send an email to trudypostsprunk@charter.net with any suggestions you feel appropriate.
