This package combines Garry Landreth's bestselling textbook, Play Therapy: The Art of the Relationship, 3rd Edition with a 50-minute video demonstration of Landreth working with a young girl in Child Centered Play Therapy: A Clinical Session. The DVD shows Landreth in a complete, unscripted play therapy session, interrupted only by an audio commentary provided by the author himself, highlighting key moments in the session. The video, originally produced and filmed by the Play Therapy Institute, is now offered in this special training set at a substantial savings over the combined retail price of the book and DVD if purchased individually. Additional student and instructor activities and exercises have also been developed specifically for this package, tying the book and video content together even more, in order to make this a unique and dynamic learning tool.
