Margaret Lowenfeld realized that play was the medium through which children worked out their emotional conflicts and that it was a cognitive process which could be analyzed, in a non-Freudian way, to understand and deal with behavior problems and also perhaps help children to develop. She developed the then new concept of non-verbal communication, and methods and tools for using play as therapy and as a therapeutic and analytical tool. This book follows on from her classic book Play in Childhood, which was published in 1935.

Sandplay: A Sourcebook for Play Therapists demonstrates the way transformation happens. Like the body, the psyche is designed to be self-healing. Its contents can be restructured. If a clinician wanted to better understand a child’s use of a snake in sand tray therapy how many resources are there? Where does one go? To date there has been no single text that aids in understanding the symbolism children use in play. This is just such a book. Sandplay is practical. The clinician can easily find information using The Dictionary of Play Imagery, or the extensive Subject Index. The text is interwoven with ample references to crucial clinical findings. Case studies clearly illustrate each point. This book will find a permanent place in therapists' libraries.

Nurturing brain development in children through play. The mental health field has seen a significant shift in the past decade toward including a neuroscience perspective when designing clinical interventions. However, for many play therapists it has been challenging to apply this information in the context of play therapy. Here, Theresa Kestly teaches therapists how to understand the neurobiology of play experiences so the undeniable benefits of play therapy can be exploited to their fullest. At last, clinical readers have a book that takes seriously the importance of play and brings a scientific eye to this most important aspect of life. Drawing on concepts of interpersonal neurobiology, the benefits of play interventions to achieve attunement, neural integration, healthy attachment, and the development of resilience and well-being become clear. The book is organized into three parts. The first part lays a conceptual foundation for considering play in relation to the neurobiology of the developing brain and mind. The next part explores specific topics about play including the therapeutic playroom, the collaborative relationship between therapist and clients, storytelling, and mindfulness. The last part of the book asks questions about the state of play in our families, clinics, and schools. How did we get to a place where play has been so devalued, and what can we do about it? Now that we know how important play is across the lifespan from a scientific standpoint, what can we do to fully integrate it into our lives? After reading this book, clinicians, teachers, and even parents will understand why play helps children (and adults) heal from painful experiences, while developing self-regulation and empathy. The clinical examples in the book show just how powerful the mind is in its natural push toward wholeness and integration.

Sandplay in Three Voices provides a unique and engaging understanding of sandplay - a growing modality of psychotherapy. Emerging out of informal conversations among three senior therapists, it examines the essential aspects of sandplay therapy as well as the depth and breadth of the human psyche. The book is organized into eight sections covering eight of the most important topics in sandplay - Therapist, Silence, Child, Mother, Self, Shadow, Chaos, and Numinous. Each section begins with a trialogue discussing theory, history and practice of sandplay in that area. The trialogues allow the reader to witness three senior therapists addressing and attempting to understand the many layers of each topic, and reflect their agreements and disagreements as they reveal their individual thoughts on, and personal experiences of, the themes they discuss. Each trialogue is followed by a set of solo presentations in which each author focuses on her contribution, and on the role of each topic in sandplay. Illustrated by original clinical examples, this unique approach addresses issues of concern to analysts and other psychotherapists. Its basic orientation makes it of particular value in the study, practice and teaching of sandplay therapy.
