Book description
In this third volume, highly acclaimed author Liana Lowenstein has compiled an impressive collection of techniques from experienced practitioners. Interventions are outlined for engaging, assessing, and treating children of all ages and their families. Activities address a range of issues including Feelings Expression, Social Skills, Self-Esteem, and Termination. A “must have” for mental health professionals seeking to add creative interventions to their repertoire.


“This third volume is a compendium of creative therapeutic techniques for use with children, youth, and families. Seasoned therapists, as well as beginners, will find new ways of communicating therapeutic content in developmentally sensitive ways. The book’s user-friendly format helps clinicians match interventions to specific treatment goals and serves as a welcome addition to the field.”

--Paris Goodyear-Brown, LCSW, RPT-S
Author of Play Therapy with Traumatized Children

 “Liana Lowenstein has gathered a wonderful array of activities to use with children, youth, and families in therapy. It is indeed a creative collection of practical and engaging ideas from therapists from around the world who know what works. The age suitability guides, sectional divisions and clear activity outlines makes this an immensely and immediately usable resource.”

--Jacki Short, M,Ed.(Adult Ed.) MAPS
Registered Psychologist

“I love this Third volume of Assessment and Treatment Activities for Children, Adolescents and Families—it is an excellent resource when working in a focused manner with clients. If you are a clinician that utilizes expressive art activities, games, or varied modalities, you are sure to find many ideas in this excellent resource.”
--Theresa Fraser, CYW, MA, CPT
President, Canadian Association for Child and Play Therapy

Wow!  Liana Lowenstein has done it again with her third and final volume of Assessment and Treatment Activities for Children, Adolescents, and Families.  Lowenstein takes the practical and makes it applicable in her 208 page compilation of over 70 innovative activities. The techniques cover a wide range in each of the topic areas, making it a very useful manual. Each volume is full of creative and engaging activities for children, adolescents and families and this volume tops it off!”

Important message regarding fraudulent misuse of my training materials

It recently came to my attention that another therapist plagiarized my work. My entire Sexual Abuse Training Handout (over 70 PowerPoint slides) was copied verbatim, my name was removed from the handouts, and the individual presented the material as being her own original work during the training sessions she teaches (and sells) online. Of course, the unauthorized use of my material is illegal under copyright law, represents a serious ethical violation and is not the professional behavior I have learned to expect in our field—not to mention that fraudulent misrepresentation is a crime! 

Many of us grant permission for mental health practitioners to utilize the material from publications and from training handouts for direct clinical work with clients. However, let’s be reminded that permission for any use of the material from publications or training handouts for any other purpose, must be requested in writing from the author to get appropriate approval.  We all need to continue to appreciate and respect each other’s work and execute ethical standards of practice!

As a result of the above, I feel compelled to alert my colleagues to remain vigilant regarding their own professional intellectual property.  Please continue to place copyright statements on all of your work and verbally remind attendees that presentations, handouts and all professional material remains the exclusive property of the presenter, even after a training event has ended.
