    The Study and Treatment of Disturbed Children by Margaret Lowenfeld

    I want to present to you some of the conceptions concerning both the nature of neurosis in children and the therapy of the neuroses, which have arisen from the work of a group in London of which I am Director. But in order to make these conceptions intelligible, it is necessary first to convey some idea of the setting in which the work is done.
    I should like you to imagine a house of much the same structure as your brownstone houses here; four storeys in height, with a flight of steps leading to the front door and rooms on each side of the entrance. At the back, the house extends at one side so as to enclose a small square garden.
    Inside, the house is arranged so that each floor accommodates a different side of the work. On the floor to which the flight of steps leads are my Consulting Room and Play Room, the administrative offices and the room of the parents’ psychiatrist. On the floor above are the general waiting room, the paediatrician’s room, office of the social worker and accommodation for students and records. But the centre of the work is the children’s floor which occupies the whole space on the garden level.
