Play Therapy Ireland Members have access to:
'Play for Life' - the full colour practitioner journal published by Play Therapy International (PTI) and including contributions from Ireland
Research reports based upon play therapy clinical outcomes data held in the SEPACTO database managed by PTUK on behalf of PTI and PTIrl.
Play Therapy UK is in the process of constructing a play therapy bibliographic database which will be made available for all PTIrl Members. At present this has over 400 titles which are currently being classified and graded.
As an interim measure we list below the 'most read' play therapy books.
This list is based upon the number of book reviews produced by APAC's students' during the Certificate in Therapeutic Play and Diploma in Play Therapy courses. It is therefore derived from the course reading list and the usefulness found by the students. The list includes includes books about individual play therapy 'tools' such as music, sandtray, movement and drama as well as play therapy itself. The top three titles are recommended as essential reading for anyone who wishes to train as a Play Therapist. The list shows the title, publisher, ISBN and authors/editors.
