- A deep story of deep play : how the play, trance and séance of the Senoir Temiar people can help us understand greater playfulness -- Journeying within : using tunnel and cave imagery to access the inner imaginative world -- The keys to the world : revolution and epiphany in deep sand -- Behold the treasure and the swamp! digging, delving, poking, pounding, and getting to the bottom of things -- Subcutaneous, subcortical, subconscious and subterranean : the most toxic boy in the world's search for mum -- Out of the box and into the wild -- Deep sand : body-centered, imaginative play -- Emergence : a tale of two boys -- Musings about improving and deepening connections in families -- A case for in-depth, long-term therapy.
- Contributions from a range of therapeutic disciplines demonstrate deep play's capacity to elicit real change in children and how they think about themselves and the world. Including techniques with deep sandboxes, clay and water, alongside case studies and theoretical grounding, this book establishes a new depth psychology approach for treatment.
