schema:description"The introductory section presents essential background information, comparing and contrasting CCPT with other widely practiced play therapy approaches. Part II takes a closer look at the nuts and bolts of intervention. Flexible yet systematic guidelines are provided for setting up a playroom, structuring sessions, and understanding and responding empathically to children's play themes. The role of parents in therapy is covered in Part III. Chapters demonstrate the process of consulting with parents, involving them in treatment, and helping them interact with their child in more productive ways. Part IV offers insights into treating a broad range of child and family difficulties, including anxiety disorders, trauma, divorce, and attachment problems. Other key topics include how to deal with challenging behaviors in session, maintain appropriate boundaries, collaborate effectively with other professionals, and develop competence for working with culturally diverse clients. Rounding out the volume, Part V distills the evidence base for CCPT and describes recommended training resources."@en
