Developmental Play Stages in Child Identity Construction: An Interactionist Theoretical Contribution.
Berg, Lars-Erik
International Journal of Early Childhood, v31 n1 p11-24 1999
Presents a theory of child-development stages that reflects the relationship between children's play and the need to create a personal identity. Considers the relationship between socializing play and individuation, and defines four stages of identity development through play: amorphous, play, games, and generalization and maturity. (JPB)
