O'Brien, Patrick (2004) Wearing your underpants on the outside: investigating children's hero play. Every Child, 10 (4). pp. 12-14. ISSN 1322-0659

Abstract

'As a practising non-directive play therapist, working mainly with children... it is usually my task to assist the child to experience the qualities within the superhero and to assist the child to find these same qualities within themselves. Finding the hero within often builds a capacity for resilience.'
