Integrating Play Therapy and EMDR with Children is a reference book for clinicians who have been formally trained in both EMDR and Play therapy techniques. Creative and safe methods teach clinicians how to weave experiential play therapy and EMDR together for successful treatment philosophies and actions of play therapy and EMDR are reviewed and integrated so that the inherent polarized energies emerge in a compatible therapeutic balance.This book is not intended to provide training in EMDR, per se, instead, various ideas for using EMDR with children are explored. Integrating Play Therapy and EMDR focuses on the use of traditional child-centered therapy for the post-language child whether they actually use language or not. Because so many children are initially resistant to EMDR this is a very useful tool to facilitate the maximum benefit for the child's treatment experience.

I've been struggling to understand and implement EMDR with children. This book is concise and thorough in describing EMDR with kids. It's helped me revisit slowing down while working with kids. The book has reminded me that sometimes while using play therapy (and in conjunction with EMDR in this case) you may not know what a child is working on, but that the relationship between therapist and child is one of the most important pieces. I'm also reminded to SLOW down. I'm not completely done with the book, but so far it's been extremely helpful in understanding how to implement EMDR with kids!
I would not really recommend this book, as it is a workbook associated with some sort of training. Hence, it is not really well written, for those of us with little time to sort things out. That's my main objection. The information seems pretty good, but too terse for someone wanting a rounded presentation.
I have read many books on both emdr and play therapy. This book was written in a very strange and choppy manner. As if the author pulled together various other things she had written and put them into book format. If you do not know anything about play therapy buy the book. However if you have basic knowledge on the subject pass it buy. As for the Emdr part.....look to another source
