Summary

Building on the foundations of the "independent tradition" of British object relations theory and modern infancy research, Sanville proffers a new understanding of the role of play in the clinical situation. She attends especially to the therapeutic situation as a safe playground, the therapist's playful engagement of the patient, and the patient's emergent ability to embrace playfully the liberating possibilities of psychoanalytic therapy.
