On Lowenfeld and Playtherapy

  • About

    by Thérèse Woodcock on work by Margaret Lowenfeld.

    Play is central to a child’s life. Lowenfeld believed that play is a child’s natural medium of expression and communication. This led her to develop psychotherapeutic techniques that engaged the child through play.

    There will be a description of how her child psychotherapy training institute functioned as a treatment centre. A short treatment case which exemplifies this unique child-centred form of psychotherapy will be presented.
