Abstract

Inclusion, Play and Empathy explores how professionals in preschools and schools can assist children to develop socially and emotionally and increase self‐esteem and confidence. Whilst the book focuses upon preschools and schools, the approaches, theory, and case examples have clinical relevance for professionals across many settings who work with children.The publication brings together a wealth of experience from music therapists, early childhood educators, psychotherapists, psychologists, and occupational therapists who share their insight and knowledge of working with children, aged 4–12 years. The book is edited by Susan Hart, a specialist and supervisor in psychology and psychotherapy.In the Introduction, Hart reports that society prioritises children's learning, particularly regarding cognitive competencies, such as maths and literacy, to prepare them for the workplace. The emphasis is placed upon individual growth. However, human development relies equally upon the ability to engage and interact in communities. This requires skills in empathy, cooperation, and cohesion. Hart states that cognitive skills can be developed through study. However, she then questions: ‘What happens to children who have been unable to develop basic social and emotional skills, or who feel inadequate, have poor self‐esteem or are unable to interact with others?’ (p. 12).Hart reports that the development of social
