Play and Creativity in Psychotherapy

Norton Series on Interpersonal Neurobiology

Hardcover

Terry Marks-Tarlow (Author), Daniel J. Siegel (Author, UCLA School of Medicine), Marion Solomon (Author)

 

Distinguished clinicians demonstrate how play and creativity have everything to do with the deepest healing, growth, and personal transformation.

Through play, as children, we learn the rules and relationships of culture and expand our tolerance of emotions—areas of life "training" that overlap with psychotherapy. Here leading writers illuminate what play and creativity mean for the healing process at any stage of life.

Endorsements & Reviews

“This book explores creativity and play as related not only to psychotherapy but more broadly to improvisation and theater, confidence and self-awareness, optimism, parent-child relationships, ADHD, trauma, intuition, neurobiology, and even the future of humankind. The impressive list of contributors touch on a wide range of topics. The extensive coverage should not come as a surprise, given that play and creativity are such enormously important topics for individuals at all ages and in all cultures. Indeed, this book will fascinate psychotherapists as well as individuals who have nothing to do with psychotherapy but are interested in the fulfillment of potentials, both of individuals and of society as a whole. ” — Mark A. Runco, PhD, Editor-in-Chief, Creativity Research Journal
