Lorri Yasenik and Ken Gardner discuss their Play Therapy Dimensions Model


‘Play Therapy Dimensions Model’, the new book by play therapists Lorri Yasenik and Ken Gardner, provides a unique model that is fully illustrated by an instructional DVD. The model allows therapists to tailor their approach to the specific needs of the child. Practitioners are encouraged to be engaged and flexible during sessions, adapting their levels of directiveness and consciousness according to the child’s responses. Through detailed written and visual case studies, the authors clearly explain the model, how to use it and the positive therapeutic effects it can have on the child. The book also provides additional support to play therapy practitioners and play therapy supervisors with the inclusion of useful forms that aid therapy planning, conceptualization and evaluation.

In this video, Lorri and Ken explain the Play Therapy Dimensions Model, a decision-making tool that is already being used worldwide.
