Diagnoses of Asperger Syndrome in children and adolescents are on the rise, and while a limited minority of clinicians has training and experience in this area, a majority do not. Doing Therapy with Children and Adolescents with Asperger Syndrome is the only guide of its kind for doing both talk and play therapy with young people with Asperger Syndrome. It meets the growing need for practical clinical guidance in this area. Using vivid case material, it offers clinicians wisdom attuned to their needs and those of the young people they endeavor to help.
