By Barbara A. Turner, PhD & Kristin Unnsteinsdottir, PhD
Combining the fields of child psychology and child education, this groundbreaking work explores how engaging children in Jungian sandplay therapy and imaginative storytelling can improve classroom performance and to increase intelligence scores. Written by child specialists, it makes a solid argument for the necessary consideration of the unconscious and the inner world of the individual child in learning and advocates that curriculum design for children must include both imaginative therapeutic play and active attention to childrens emotional needs. Educators, psychotherapists, and concerned parents alike will find this book informative and useful.
