  • About

    By Margaret Lowenfeld

    Mission Statement

    The Dr Margaret Lowenfeld Trust was set up after her death in 1973. The general aims and objectives are, the maintenance, development and dissemination of the ideas and work of the late Dr. Margaret Lowenfeld, a pioneer of child psychotherapy. To these ends the Trust firstly ensures that Dr Lowenfeld’s books are kept in print, and that the tools she invented for non- verbal communication and for experiential learning continue to be commercially available. Secondly, the Trust aims to ensure the existence of professional practitioners trained to employ Dr. Lowenfeld’s methods in their work with children and their families. Thirdly, the Trust supports research into the application of Lowenfeld’s ideas and methods in the contemporary world. Dr. Lowenfeld’s ethos which underlies all these aims is that each individual whether child or adult, has a singular view of the world based upon the constitution and personal experience. The Lowenfeld approach is one of facilitating people’s, particularly children’s understanding of themselves in their own terms. Change needs to be effected through a solution that makes sense to the child/adult and which they see as possible given their circumstances.
