Harness the Therapeutic Power of the Superhero!
With insight from contributors such as Michael Brody, Patty Scanlon, and Roger Kaufman, Lawrence Rubin takes us on a dynamic tour of the benefits of using icons of popular culture and fantasy in counseling and play therapy.
In presenting case studies and wisdom gleaned from practicing therapists' experience, Rubin shows how therapists can uncover children's secret identities, assist treatment of adolescents with sexual behavior problems, and inspire the journey of individuation for gay and lesbian clients. Not only can superheroes assist in clinical work with children, but Rubin demonstrates how they can facilitate growth and change with teen and adults."
