This is a story from inside the child psychologist’s room. Victor is two and a half years old and has lost his mother and younger brother in a car accident. He is “sunny and happy” and doesn’t cry. He is a child in deep crisis.
This book follows Victor for his fifteen treatment sessions, showing how his therapist pilots the boy through his grief via play and other activities. This healing by play therapy is depicted in words and pictures from the perspective of both patient and therapist. Bringing both hope and courage, Elisabeth Cleve shows how crisis therapy can work as the first link to a new future.
