Play Therapy UK (PTUK) publishes:  

The 'Play for Life' journal for play therapists and practitioners of therapeutic play.

Research reports from the SEPACTO database to data contributors.  

Play Therapy Books

Books that have recently been reviewed in the Play for Life journals are listed with the reviews. Play Therapy UK is constructing a play therapy bibliographic database which will be made available for all PTUK Members. At present this has over 400 titles which are currently being classified and graded. As an interim stage we have produced a list of the most read play therapy books.  

This list is based upon the number of book reviews produced by APAC's students' during the Certificate in Therapeutic Play and Diploma in Play Therapy courses. It is therefore derived from the course reading list and the usefulness found by the students. The list includes books about individual play therapy tools such as music, sandtray, movement and drama as well as play therapy itself. The top three titles are recommended as essential reading for anyone who wishes to train as a Play Therapist. The list shows the title, publisher, ISBN and authors/editors.
