Author of A Kidz Toy Box and Too Cool to Play

 "This creative book addresses key areas in therapeutic work with children including engagement and assessment, identifying and coping with feelings, anger management, social skills, and self-esteem. I have used these strategies in my practice and have found them highly practical and appealing to children and helpful with a wide range of presenting problems. I recommend this book enthusiastically to all child and play therapists, as well as school counselors who will find within a treasure chest of creative and innovative ideas."

—- David A. Crenshaw, Ph.D., ABPP, RPT-S
Author of Evocative Strategies in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy and Therapeutic Engagement of Children and Adolescents: Symbol, Play, Drawing, and Storytelling Strategies

 "With this collection, Liana Lowenstein has managed to build into the activities about as many key variables as one could hope for and there is also “kid appeal” both in the names of the activities (“Road Rage”) and the activities themselves (blowing bubbles, playing cards, having a birthday party). The activities allow children to express themselves in whatever manner is most comfortable—drawing, acting, speaking, cutting and pasting, etc. A thorough and thoughtful resource."

 —- Dennis E. McDermott, CCW, Med, CYC
Executive Director, Ontario Association of Child and Youth Counsellors

"More Creative Interventions will appeal to those wishing to embark on directive work with their clients. This book is a terrific addition to the bookshelf and I personally look forward to putting many of the interventions into play."
