Contents: Clinical Insights from a Master Practitioner Filled with moving examples of children's artwork, sand play, and other forms of creative expression, the program describes the specific therapeutic needs of traumatized children. Dr. Gil balances general conceptual guidelines with in-depth commentary on specific cases, illuminating: Stylistic and symbolic themes in these children's artwork How to respect children's defenses while guiding their play What it means to resolve a traumatic event The use of specific play media for working with trauma Dissociative Symptoms and Posttraumatic Play Children who have been traumatized often experience dissociation as well as other symptoms associated with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). With a reenacted clinical interview, footage from an actual play therapy session, and detailed comparisons of the work of children who have been traumatized with that of normally functioning children, Dr. Gil helps viewers understand: What dissociation looks like in children's paintings and drawings Why dissociation occurs, and how it can be addressed in therapy The distinctive characteristics of posttraumatic play Concrete ways to intervene when repetitive or ritualized play becomes harmful The Manual A handy companion manual amplifies themes presented in the video and provides resource lists and references for students and practitioners.
