Extraordinary Children

ANZPA Journal No 19, Dec 2010

Sara Crane traces the journey of her psychotherapeutic work with three children, describing how she came to appreciate the therapeutic potency of the extraordinary elemental roles enacted by them. The work of the clinician is to understand the context and underlying value system of these frequently unattractive and antisocial roles and to ensure that they are doubled, mirrored and harnessed to the progressive system.
