“Integrating Technology into Modern Therapies is a ground-breaking and cutting-edge book that addresses the exploding digital age that is significantly impacting psychotherapy. This volume brings together an impressive array of authors writing on such topics as support for the technology-minded therapist, the use of video games, virtual reality, texting, videoconferencing, and the use of technology for medical procedures, speech treatment, and supervision. It is a must-have book as therapists embrace the digital age and use of technology in their treatment approaches.”

―Athena A. Drewes, PsyD, RPT-S, founder and past president emeritus of the New York Association for Play Therapy, consulting director of APA-Accredited Doctoral Internship, Astor Services for Children and Families

“This timely book is a must-read for novice and advanced therapists trying to determine which technological advances are empirically supported and best meet the needs of their individual clients.”

―Charles E. Schaefer, PhD, RPT-S, cofounder and director emeritus of the Association for Play Therapy

“Digital Play Therapy is a must read for clinicians who want to understand the use of digital technology in psychotherapy. It is a well thought through text with a focus on the therapeutic powers of play and play modalities”

― Charles Schaefer, PhD, RPT-S, professor emeritus of clinical psychology at Fairleigh Dickinson University, USA
