CHAPTER 8
Play and Adaptation in
Traumatized Young Children
and Their Caregivers in Israel1

Esther Cohen

Playing … is the activity through which the human subject most freely and
intensively constitutes himself or herself. To play is to affirm an “I”, an au-
tonomous subjectivity that exercises control over a world of possibilities;
at the same time, and contrarily, it is in playing that the I can experience
itself in its most fluid and boundaryless state … (Rubin, 1994, p. 280)

1I am grateful to Dr. Saralea Chazen, who inspired this work by introducing me to the
the Children’s Play Therapy Instrument, took part in the scoring process, and provided
creative suggestions and insights throughout the project. I also wish to thank my two
graduate assistants, Moran Lerner and Efrat Maimon, for their devotion, resilience, and
partnership in the emotionally taxing process of data collection and analysis. In addition,
I am indebted to the parents, teachers, and children who participated in our project and
allowed us to share their experiences. Special thanks go to the following psychologists
for their help in recruiting families: Yochi Kalmanzon, Mazal Menachem, Liora Barak;
Naomi Eini, Danielle Amram, Ruth Pat-Horenczyk, and Hana Oppenheim. Finally, finan-
cial support was obtained through a grant from the Levi Eshkol Institute for Economic,
Social and Political Research at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
