In this instructive video program, well-known play and family therapist Eliana Gil elucidates the nature of trauma, how to recognize it clinically, and how to manage its powerful effects on children's development with the use of specific art and play techniques. The video includes a reenacted clinical interview and footage from an actual play therapy session, as well as many moving examples of children's work. With empathy and wisdom, Dr. Gil discusses such important topics as what dissociation looks like in children's paintings and drawings and how to intervene effectively in posttraumatic play.
"Helping students and novice practitioners see clearly the various aspects of the craft, Dr. Gil models an accepting stance that in itself may represent a new experience for these children. [This video] opens up many possibilities for therapists who are working with children not yet ready to verbalize traumatic events or the feelings associated with them."--William N.
