9781556053979: The Spirituality of Play; An Existential Understanding of Play Therapy with Children

This work is written for anyone who desires to become more closely attuned to their children. Spirituality is used as a venue to help delineate the growth that is necessary for human development. Through the use of play, adults can discover their children in love. A large component of this work alludes that parents and others who work with children must use play as the way of reaching out to the child. The play room or the play sessions are where we must physically meet our children. That holy place of discovery can be through play.

Review:

This work is about Knowing, offering a positive and loving world view. It teaches us about who we are from perspectives of psychology, biology, nature, and God. It shows us how to grow so that we may both lead and guide others in growth, particularly children and with special attention to their awareness of the existential value in life through play. There is material here to foster many hours of meditation, discussion, learning, and fun! --Kirsten Alcorn

Dr. Flemmer=s highly readable exploration into the relationship between the spiritual development and play therapy of children is essential for educators, parents, counselors, play therapists, clergy, religious advisors, Sunday School teachers, and psychologists alike in order to enhance their ability to explore this aspect of child development. --Angela Lawrence
