This book looks at the use of play as a therapeutic and developmental tool when dealing with children across socio-economic divisions who have suffered trauma or loss.

It is divided into two parts—Part I covers key concepts on which play and play therapy is based. Part II of the book focuses on the use of various types of play and art methods while working with children.

The last section talks about the use of play to get messages across to children on important topics like child sexual abuse and life-formation skills.

Dr Shubhada Maitra is Associate Professor and Chairperson, Centre for Health and Mental Health, School of Social Work, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai. Dr Shekhar Seshadri is Professor, Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, NIMHANS, Bengaluru.
