THE Play Therapy Book Club

Just a few of the many play therapy books that I love.  

In this play therapy book club community, we hold each other accountability for reading on a regular basis and staying up to date with clinical skills.  

I love a book club because it helps me CHOOSE a book.  Without this, I often get overwhelmed with so many good options and end up reading nothing.

Another benefit of a book club is it makes sure you FINISH the book.  Knowing that your colleagues are planning to discuss a book (or seeing them post about it in our private FB group) will motivate you to actually read the books on your shelf! 

And discussing the book in one of our live meetings will help you INTEGRATE the material.

Current Pick: November/December 2018

Available only through Norton Pubslihers until Nov 20th when it is released everywhere.

Beginning in November 2019. we will be reviewing and discussing Aggression in Play Therapy: A Neurological Approach to Integrating Intensity by Lisa Dion.

*This book was chosen by members of our private FB group (Play Therapy Summit).

**Our book club is educational, but is not eligible for any APT or NBCC credits.    

How This Book Club Works


Some people like to just know what we are reading and want to read along. You can check back each month for book ideas. 


Use hashtags #playtherapybookclub or #jentaylorbookclub AND #lisadion #playtherapyaggression to discuss on this page or other social media.


Join the Play Therapy Summit Group to catch my thoughts on the book during  a FB live on November 19th at 5pm Eastern
