Aggression in Play Therapy: A Neurobiological Approach for Integrating Intensity 1st Edition

This book offers a way to work with aggressive play that allows children to learn how to integrate the intensity they are experiencing from their thoughts, emotions, and sensations while simultaneously supporting regulation in the therapist’s nervous system. These will help therapists understand the neurobiological processes that lead kids to dysregulation and help them facilitate emotional healing in their clients.



Play therapy can do more than we thought. Much more. Lisa Dion, LPC, RPT-S offers a new perspective on working with kids. She provides therapists with a science-based process for working with children at the deepest, most profound levels of healing while staying safe and sane. Integrating Extremes is a book that explores a new understanding of aggression and death play that’s based on brain function and neuroscience. It presents therapists with a framework to authentically work with the intensity of aggression and death play without causing their own nervous systems to start to shut down. Integrating Extremes shows therapists how to facilitate aggression and death play in a way that truly allows healing to occur, for both the therapist and the child.

This book will be released on October 16, 2018.
