Dr. Fine spent more than 50 years practicing in these challenging fields by using Individual, Family, and Play Therapy with children. Attachment, loss, displacement, abuse, and continuity are but a few of the topics to be discussed as it is related to Play Therapy. Dr. Fine mentored Allan Gonsher for 35 years, and will be interviewed by him.
