Building  on Winnicott’s theory of play, this book defines the concept of play  from the perspective of clinical practice, elaborating on its  application to clinical problems. 

Although  Winnicott’s theory of play constitutes a radical understanding of the  intersubjectivity of therapy, Cooper contends, there remains a need to  explore the significance of play to the enactment of  transference-countertransference. Among several ideas, this book  considers how to help patients as they navigate debilitating internal  object relations, supporting them to engage with "bad objects" in  alternatively playful ways. In addition, throughout the book, Cooper  develops an ethic of play that can support the analyst to find  "ventilated spaces" of their own, whereby they can reflect on  transference-countertransference. Rather than being hindered by the  limits of the therapeutic setting, this book explores how possibilities  for play can develop out of these very constraints, ultimately providing  a fulsome exploration of the concept without eviscerating its magic. 

With  a broad theoretical base, and a wide definition of play, this book will  appeal to psychoanalysts and psychoanalytic psychotherapists wanting to  understand how play functions within and can transform their clinical  practice.
