Play Therapy.
Axline, Virginia M.
An introduction to children with emotional problems is followed by discussions of the non-directive play therapy situation and participants: the playroom and suggested materials, the child, the therapist, and the parent or parent-substitute as an indirect participant. The eight basic principles of non-directive therapy are considered along with problems in establishing rapport, accepting the child completely, establishing a feeling of permissiveness, recognizing and reflecting feelings, maintaining respect for the child, allowing the child to lead the way, not hurrying therapy, and knowing the value of limitations. Implications for education mentioned are practical schoolroom application of non-directive methods and application to parent-teacher relationships and to teacher-administrator relationships. Annotated therapy records from cases of children aged 4 to 12 years are presented. (LE)
