Essential reading for anyone those involved in the psychology of children, this work details how Margaret Lowenfeld developed new forms of communication with children—primarily through the use of play and specifically through sand play—allowing psychotherapists to locate and address behavioral problems resulting from trauma, especially as from the result of war.

“It is hoped that the drawing of Lowenfeld’s insights in this publication will stimulate a revival of interest in her very original ideas.” —British Journal of Psychiatry

“The portrait of Lowenfeld that emerges from this collection is a major acquisition for a gallery of unrivalled interest and importance.” —Radical Philosophy
