Abstract:This paper provides a clinical illustration of the symbolic use of play in the treatment of an encopretic boy of eight. The historical and contemporary literature relating to both play and to encopresis are reviewed. Process material and case formulation are presented to provide examples of the way in which intrapsychic conflict is interpreted.
