~June Rickli MS, LMHC, CCPT-S, RPT

“Dr. Mullen and June Rickli have done a masterful job reminding us of the importance of being advocates not only for children,

but for the field of play therapy. The reader is reminded of the critical skills necessary in being a sensitive and reflective

consultant with parents and other professionals. Engagement and advocacy are interwoven throughout the workbook, with page

after page of clear explanations, meaningful exercises and thoughtful responses to some of the more challenging consultation

experiences. This manual is a gift to the skill set of all play therapists, as it further defines our professional identities.”

~Mary Anne Peabody, LCSW, RPT-S

competence and confidence that are the foundation for sound consultation. Some highlights include:

How Play Therapists Can Engage Parents & Professionals

By Jodi Ann Mullen& June Rickli

“Jodi Ann Mullen’s and June Rickli’s workbook will be invaluable to play therapists in consulting with parents,

educators, referring mental health providers, other professionals and managed care companies. This book fills a

critical gap because most play therapists do not get sufficient training and guidance in the consulting process

but it is an integral part of the work. This book laid out in workbook form is creatively designed and organized

with lots of practical examples of difficult challenges to be faced in consultations. The book will be of immense

help in graduate school programs preparing play therapists for the real world of practice. I enthusiastically

recommend it especially for beginning play therapists or those entering private practice for the first time.”
