Bringing together an array of highly creative contributors, this comprehensive resource

how play, art, drama, and other expressive activities can effectively engage families and
help them resolve complex problems. Practitioners from divergent theoretical orientations,
work settings, or client specializations will find a plethora of stimulating and useable clinical
interventions in this book. Edited by Liana Lowenstein. Forward by Augustus Napier. 352

Pre-publication reviews
“Engaging children in the therapy process is often one of the most challenging tasks of the
family therapist. Liana Lowenstein has edited a wonderful compendium of helpful family
therapy interventions, activities, and techniques for use with children. Drawn from the
experiences of in-the-trenches therapists, and unlike most books on family therapy, this book
will be immediately useful for all levels of practicing family therapists.”

--Terry S. Trepper, PhD
Professor of Psychology, Purdue University Calumet
Editor, Journal of Family Psychotherapy

"This comprehensive collection contains a wealth of innovative ideas for involving
children in family therapy sessions. The techniques are easy to understand and readily
implemented in a variety of settings. The interventions are classified into sections so
therapists can easily select and apply them. A valuable resource for mental health
professionals who work with families."

--Charles E. Schaefer, PhD, RPT-S
Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Teaneck, NJ
Co-Editor, Family Play Therapy

“Creative Family Therapy Techniques is a valuable and well-organized collection of techniques
drawn from play, art, drama, and other creative approaches. The range and variety contained
within allows any therapist, educator, or other helping professional to enter into a more
experiential, playful, and expressive way of working with families.”

--Joan Phillips, PhD, LMFT, LPC, ATR-BC
Art therapist in private practice, Norman, OK
Professor, University of Oklahoma School of Art and Art History
