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)

Overview | Contents
 

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.

Contributors include: Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, Daniel J. Siegel, Marion Solomon, Aldrich Chan, Allan Schore, Terry Marks-Tarlow, Pat Ogden, Louis Cozolino, Theresa Kestly, Jaak Panksepp, Stuart Brown, Madelyn Eberly,  Zoe Galvez, Betsy Crouch, Bonnie Goldstein, and Steve Gross.

Endorsements & Reviews

Play and Creativity in Psychotherapy is a good resource for clinicians who may be skeptical about the concept of play in psychotherapy, yet may be burned out on traditional ways of doing therapy day after day. It provides a framework to approach the work from a different mindset, and perhaps breathe new life into clinical sessions.” — Psych Central

“Anyone who loves Paris’s remaining quirky ‘villages’ will revel in Sciolino’s meticulously reported accounts. . . .Sciolino doesn’t lack for inspiration; she has Paris at her feet.” — Mark A. Runco, PhD, Editor-in-Chief, Creativity Research Journal
