The Administrative Challenges of (Play) Therapy brings together essays by eight therapists who tell the stories their career paths in the fields of social work and psychology, specializing in children and family therapy . Each author comments on issues such as professional expenses, referrals, case load, the “Play Room”, and administrative responsibilities. They provide insight into their work as clinicians and administrators in private practice, in-home, agency, and educational settings. In addition to the settings in which they practice, they also discuss the diversity of modalities they use, with a focus on Play Therapy, School-Based Therapy, and Child-Parent interaction. They also discuss their personal journeys in their roles as parents and professionals and the challenges of both. These therapists also outline the many certification programs and licenses available in the field and new modalities available in therapy today. In all essays, the therapist examine their goals, passions, and commitment to assisting children and families who have experienced trauma, violence, learning disabilities and substance abuse, and more.
