Virginia Axline is well-known for her contributions to the theory and practice of play therapy with children. Her book, Play Therapy, has won wide acclaim. In her 1964 classic, Dibs In Search of Self`, we meet a deeply disturbed, gifted little boy (an IQ of 168) who, as a result of Dr Axline`s subtle and skilful clinical help, emerges as a strong, healthy personality. Dibs is the study of an accomplished play therapist at work. The book is required reading on many counsellor training courses.
