Experienced 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 such as Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Daniel J. Siegel, Jaak Panksepp, Allan Schore, Pat Ogden, and Louis Cozolino illuminate what play and creativity mean for the healing process at any stage of life.
