book reviews and articles

for professionals

   

gAPT has a longstanding tradition of providing articles and book reviews on  a variety of play therapy related subjects.  Such materials have appeared regularly in our newsletter playnotes. all of those past articles and reviews are included below and/or on the companion Book Reviews and articles for parents.  we believe that our website offers us an opportunity to gather and house such materials on a much broader scale.  we believe this will benefit practitioners, parents, play therapy students, and the general public. 

 

therefore, we have asked major writers on play therapy to allow us to add their writings to this page and we expect to substantially enhance this library.  we will keep you posted via email when new additions are added.  if a given article appears below with a yellow background, it is because it has been isolated with other articles on the same subject.

 

we would appreciate your input since you will be the primary user.  please give us your input with suggestions as to how we can enhance the library.  an email to trudypostsprunk@charter.net would be appreciated at any time.
