What a delight to see an updated edition of this comprehensive and useful book! Lorri and Ken continue to share their experience and the development of their model. The PTDM provides us with a thoughtful, structured method to understand the intricacies and depth of the play therapy process. Perhaps as important, it allows us to look to understand ourselves as play therapists and the way we interact and engage with our clients. This is an excellent book to assist play therapists of all levels of experience to continue our own development!

This dynamic duo has done it again! This 3rd edition adds new layers of sophistication to an already nuanced decision-making model. With new chapters on case conceptualization and preparing parent feedback, this volume is packed full of clinical tools for both beginning and advanced play therapists. A must have resource for taking your clinical work to the next level.
