  1. I’v never seen play therapy described in so much detail. It’s fascinating. Such insight via apparently simple procedures. Not at all easy but then that’s half the fun of doing things with kids…

    I got to play with a 4 year old last weekend and I now remember the steep curve you’re graded on when you’re actually in the room. That you can be responsive and in-tune as well as get that level of therapy done is an amazing thing, Frederica.

    p.s. who drew the cartoons? i like ’em.

    • thanks for your sensitive comment…I am enjoying your blog, although sometimes I have difficulty with my English, so I go to the dictionnary 😦 and I don’t write very well, but I love to write texts and poems in English!!ha ha ha
      my friend who understand so well the soul of my work is Pavão, he is on my blogroll!
      he has a site too http://www.estricnina.com.br
      I love playing with kids, they have no problems with IMAGIN ACTION

  2. nothing wrong with going to the dictionary. i do, almost every day. and writing just because you enjoy it is the best 🙂

    anyway, mi español es mucho peor. i’ll stop mangling foreign languages now.

    thank goodness my reading/listening comprehension skills are decent but then i’ve never tried to write anything beyond ‘my name is’ in Spanish before. i wouldn’t dare even try in Portuguese.

    perhaps i will learn some words from your “inculta e bela” writing.

    (i’ll check Pavão’s site out and maybe let him know i like his drawing)

  3. good site and good information

  4. […] Play therapy for a joint aspiration / Ludo terapia para uma … […]

  6. This blog rocks! I gotta say, that I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks,

    A definite great read…:)
