Play as Therapy

  • About

    By Margaret Lowenfeld

    Every small child stands in a double relationship to life. On the one hand he is ignorant, helpless and entirely at the mercy of the surrounding adults. On the other hand, because of that very ignorance and helplessness and because also of his power over the physiological functions of his own body, the small child is often in the position to exert very considerable power over his environment. Moreover, this power is exerted through the very love for him and responsibility concerning him, that his guardians feel.
