"Touch in Child Counseling and Play Therapy covers the multifaceted clinical and ethical challenges that arise in a diverse array of therapy settings with children from infancy to adolescence. This has been a very ‘touchy’ and controversial subject which the authors skillfully review. Touch experiences are inevitable in work with children, and the concluding chapter covers five important core competencies in dealing with these. The book will be very helpful for clinicians across disciplines."
Nancy Boyd Webb, DSW, LICSW, RPT-S, University Distinguished Professor of Social Work emerita, Fordham University
"In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Courtney and Dr. Nolan bravely broach the often-considered taboo subject of touch within child therapy. Through their own expertise, as well as that of other experienced therapists, these authors lead readers through ethical, legal, and competency issues related to using touch in therapy in order to guide therapists through best practices and effective therapies that use touch to heal the hurting child."
Dee C. Ray, PhD, LPC-S, NCC, RPT-S, professor and director of the Child and Family Resource Clinic at the University of North Texas
"Courage, depth, wisdom, and dignity are four words that flowed throughout the reading of this groundbreaking book. In their exploration of the life-enriching power of touch, Drs. Courtney and Nolan have built a significant professional and ethical bridge that has been desperately needed for all of us who are working with children. Add this ‘must-have’ creatively crafted book to your library and be touched."
Joyce C. Mills, PhD, RPT-S, founder of StoryPlay Global and coauthor of Therapeutic Metaphors for Children and the Child Within
"Brilliant and bold, this is a groundbreaking, long-awaited book on a topic that needs thoughtful discussion and an exchange of ideas. The editors and contributors of this volume build on the pioneering work of Viola Brody and are to be commended for taking the lead on this timely and vital topic."
