Reviews

'I am awestruck by the work of Dennis McCarthy, and the unique contribution of Deep Play to our understanding of fully embodied play's imperative. This wonderful volume teaches how to better support children's need for "descent" in claiming their potency and life-force, with support from adults so willing to engage!'

'In this fascinating and moving book, Dennis McCarthy has drawn together very powerful material to show how deep play allows us to access that part of us which can be so well defended, but which, when found, enables the greatest transformation and healing.
The detailed but sensitive case studies not only fully illustrate the core concept, they draw the reader down into the playroom and on into the depths of the sandbox to sit right there alongside the child as if to witness their journey firsthand.
After reading this book, every play therapist will want a deep sand box in their playroom!'

'Beginners and experienced therapists will appreciate how this book, from start to finish, gives inspiration and guidance, examples and testimony, convincing evidence that imaginal processes and play-places can exist in our everyday lives, and that they heal.... I applaud Dennis McCarthy and his team of contributors for modeling ways of speaking about the work and presenting it, that reverberate with its bodily and energetic grounding together with the creative flights characterizing an immersion in play where the medium and the environment it creates are arguably the most potent healers.'
