  • About

    By Margaret Lowenfeld

    In studying the adult the facts that come to light are the results of events and processes started in early life. In work with children we are in direct contact with those events and see those processes at work. In the adult the effects of mistakes and failures remain, but many of the potentialities that were present in the child have disappeared by the time adult life is reached. Potentialities, which have not been realised are difficult to trace in adults in whom their presence is unsuspected, but if appropriate means be used in the study and treatment of children they can be brought to light and nourished, and used to help the child to overcome his difficulties by the development within him of the power to find direct expression in life of the forces which are inherent in him.
