BEYOND LOVE AND WORK: Why Adults Need to Play by Lenore Terr

Rediscover the Joy of Just Plain Having FunWhen you think about the things you do for recreation, does your list include a workout at the gym, a Saturday afternoon shopping trip, or a weekend at the beach? While these activities may be beneficial or relaxing, they do not encourage the same spirit of release and abandon that play can provide, according to Dr. Lenore Terr.Based on actual case studies of her adult patients and on her many years of observing the activities of young children, Dr. TerrsBeyond Love and Workis an in-depth look at the nature of play and the many benefits it can offer adults. The author also provides wonderful insights into the connections between mature play and childhood experiences. For instance, Dr. Terr describes how the game of peekaboo manifests itself as college reunions or business conventions, and how the act of pretending so often exhibited in children is closely linked to the daydreams and fantasies of adults.Beyond Love and Workoffers a compelling argument that encourages adults to clear their minds, recapture the optimism of youth, and measurably improve the psychological quality of their lives by viewing play in the same manner as children -- with a sense of adventure and verve.
