CHAPTER II THE TECHNIQUE OF EARLY ANALYSIS chapter of this book I have tried to show, special psychological mechanisms we find operative in the small child as distinct from the adult when we come to analyse it, and, on the other, what parallels exist between the two, and I have explained that it is at once these differences and these similarities which necessitate a special technique and which have led me to develop my method of Play Analysis. On a low table in my analytic room there are laid out a number of small toys of a primitive kind little wooden men the first on the one hand, what IN and women, carts, bricks and houses, carriages, motor-cars, trains, animals, as well as paper, scissors and pencils.
He will then see the child's symptoms and difficulties become drawn in to the analytic situation in exactly the same way. Its former symptoms, or the difficulties and 'naughtiness* which cor- respond to them, will come out anew. It will, for instance, begin to wet its bed once more; or, in certain situations which repeat an earlier one, it will, even if it is three or four years old, start talking like a small child of one or two. Seeing that children take in and digest their new knowledge mostly in an unconscious way, they will not be called upon on the strength of it to change their whole point of view in regard to their parents all at once.
Just as associations to dream-elements lead to the uncovering of the latent content of the dream, so do the elements of children's play, which correspond to those associations, afford a view of its latent meaning. And play analysis, no less than adult analysis, by systematically treating the actual situation as a transference-situation and establishing its connection with the originally experienced or imagined one, gives them the possibility of completely living out and working through that original situation in phantasy.
