The house of make-believe : children's play and the developing imagination by Dorothy G Singer( )

21 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combining a scientific and a humanistic approach in a series of essays that draw on both clinical and literary data, this book examines how imaginative play begins and how it develops. From the infant's first smiles and peekaboo games to the toddler's exploration of objects and participation in symbolic and social pretend play, the book traces the development of the imagination in the young child's invocation of imaginary friends and fabrication of imaginary worlds; the adolescent's daring, rule-governed games; and the adult's private imagery and inner thought. The examples and detailed review of the research show that children's make-believe continues, if less overtly, into adulthood in secret societies, Mardi Gras costumes, and Renaissance fairs, for example, and that a well-exercised imagination enriches adult life. Selected examples from the childhoods of famous, or nearly famous, and of less well-known people who simply wished to record their life experience, are used in the examination of the origins, the determinants, and the manifestations of the human imagination in childhood and early adolescence. Additional issues discussed are the relationship of television and imagination, the healing function of play, and the developmental role of playfulness and creativity throughout the lifespan. (Aa)
Handbook of children and the media by Dorothy G Singer( Book )

39 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 1,743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Internet censorship to levels of television exposure, the effects of mass media on children is one of the most widely debated issues in our society. Bringing together an interdisciplinary group of scholars from around the world, the Handbook of Children and the Media is a comprehensive analysis of the field for students and scholars. This book summarizes the current scope of research on children and the media, suggests directions for future research, and attempts to provide students with a deliberate examination of how children use, enjoy, learn from, and are advantaged or disadvantaged by regular exposure to television and other electronic media. --From publisher's description

16 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The emphasis of this volume is on the theoretical issue of whether the attributes that lead to creativity in one domain are the same as those that lead to creativity in another domain. The study of creativity is burgeoning and multidisciplinary in that it involves approaches of social, personality, cognitive, clinical, biological, differential, developmental, and educational psychology. This book will be of interest to a wide range of psychologists, researchers, and students."--Jacket
The inner world of daydreaming by Jerome L Singer( Book )

18 editions published between 1966 and 1981 in 3 languages and held by 767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though artists like Coleridge or James Joyce have traditionally been allowed and even expected to have a vivid fantasy life, daydreaming in the average person has generally been held in disrepute by clinical psychologists as an illicit way of indulging in unattainable desires, basically regressive, childish behavior when not actually a symptom of neurotic disturbance. Singer, a Yale psychologist who has been working for years combining introspective, clinical and experimental studies of ""man the image-maker, "" proposes some quite different and much more positive functions for our wide-awake reveries. He suggests that the Freudian ""cathartic"" view of daydreaming is far too restricted to encompass an inborn human talent which ""like our capacity for language or our capacity to develop various motor skills"" is part of our fundamental behavioral repertoire. Singer contends that daydreams range beyond conflict resolution of sexual and/or aggressive drives. Besides providing spontaneous enjoyment and relief from monotony or frustration, fantasies also serve as ""rehearsals for future action, "" a unique and important way by which ""we can explore a great range of future possibilities without necessarily committing ourselves through action to irrevocable consequences."--The Kirkus Reviews"--Back cover

The Power of human imagination : new methods in psychotherapy by Jerome L Singer( Book )

17 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For at least half of the twentieth century, psychology and the other mental health professions all but ignored the significant adaptive pos­ sibilities of the human gift of imagery. Our capacity seemingly to duplicate sights, sounds, and other sensory experiences through some form of central brain process continues to remain a mysterious, alma st miraculous skill. Because imagery is so much a private experience, experimental psychologists found it hard to measure and turned their attentian to observable behaviors that could easily be studied in ani­ maIs as well as in humans. Psychoanalysts and others working with the emotionally disturbed continued to take imagery informatian se­ riously in the form of dream reports, transferenee fantasies, and as indications of hallucinations or delusions. On the whole, however, they emphasized the maladaptive aspects of the phenomena, the dis­ tortions and defensiveness or the "regressive" qualities of daydreams and sequences of images. The present volume grows out of a long series of investigations by the senior author that have suggested that daydreaming and the stream of consciousness are not simply manifestations in adult life of persist­ ing phenomena of childhood. Rather, the data suggest that imagery sequences represent a major system of encoding and transforming information, a basic human capacity that is inevitably part of the brain's storage process and one that has enormous potential for adap­ tive utility. A companian volume, The Stream of Consciousness, edited by Kenneth S. Pope and Jerome L
Teaching television : how to use TV to your child's advantage by Dorothy G Singer( Book )

Here, at last, is a book that not only answers parents' questions about the potentially damaging effects of television on children, but also shows parents how to use television to further a child's growth and understanding."--Jacket

Make-believe : games and activities for imaginative play : a book for parents, teachers, and the young children in their lives by Dorothy G Singer( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book takes a rather scholarly and extensive look at a part of children's lives that would appear to be instinctive: make-believe. To achieve their stated intent to "suggest ways in which parents and teachers can foster play skills," the authors offer many adult-directed activities that will not only encourage imaginative play but also foster such areas as creativity and cognitive, motor, sensory, and social skills. A table in the front of the book links specific chapters with the development of these skills. Some suggested activities enhance the senses: smelling, tasting, hearing."
