“Christian Bellissimo has created a manual that is a reflection of his extensive experiences working with children and families. Universal Play Therapy provides practical advise about working with children in a variety of settings in an accessible, playful, and engaged manner. The integrated model captures the essence of supporting the developmental needs of young children through the principles of play therapy. Christian has charted a course that parents, teachers, and professionals can use easily and effectively.”
