Selected Papers of Margaret Lowenfeld

This book is essential reading for all those involved in the Psychology of the Child

“It is hoped that the drawing of Lowenfeld’s insights in this publication will stimulate a revival of interest in her very original ideas.” The British Journal of Psychiatry

“The portrait of Lowenfeld that emerges from this collection is a major acquisition for a gallery of unrivalled interest and importance.” Radical Philosophy

“Throughout her long and innovative life, Margaret Lowenfeld emphasised the development of new forms of communication with children, especially devoting herself to the diagnosis of troubled children…By understanding and using the tools she developed, we can experience, and so partake of, her insights.” From the Introduction by Margaret Mead, world renowned anthropologist and author of Coming of Age in Samoa, to Margaret Lowenfeld’s Understanding Children’s Sandplay

“Margaret Lowenfeld left an indelible mark…her unique understanding of play and the development of the World Technique have caught the imagination of countless practitioners and researchers, who have absorbed her methods into their work, often without knowledge of her innovative contribution.” From Rie Rogers Mitchell and Harriet S. Friedman, Sandplay: Past, Present and Future
