This early work on play therapy is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It details a non-directive method of play therapy and includes numerous records from therapy sessions. This is a fascinating work and highly recommended for anyone interested in child psychology and development. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
Miss Axline has written a penetrating and helpful book regarding the therapeutic possibilities of play and group activities. It is directed especially to teachers and workers in schools, but group workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, and case workers will also profit from a thorough study of the principles she enunciates and the techniques she advocates. -- introduction
