Results highlight the positive aspects of gameplay and the evacuant potential in the field. Conclusions suggest a continuum where presence state is a significant interim mode toward a higher order aesthetic resonance state that we claim inherent to our interpretation of play therapy. Whilst this research is a few years ago the findings are still relevant and align to contemporary studies and in context of this book where cross-reference is made from another publication.
