Summary

This edited book is the first of its kind to focus on creative approaches to the treatment of boys, providing a valuable resource for both students and professionals seeking new and effective strategies for reaching their young male clients. Chapters discuss the theory behind and implementation of various creative approaches to therapy with boys, such as play therapy, including sports, movement, and gross-motor activity; animal-assisted therapy; the use of computers and digital animation; the use of superheroes in role play, metaphor, and play therapy; and art therapy. Attention is also given to methods for working with five special populations: angry and aggressive boys; young boys with ADHD; boys with sexual behavior difficulties; gender variant and sexual minority boys; and African American boys with non-resident or absent fathers.
