Spaces for Growth – Where Milieu Therapy and Psychotherapy Meet

By Jennifer Browner and Caryn Onions, 2014.

From the Introduction…

In this chapter we are going to describe the nature of psychotherapy at the Mulberry Bush School.
The Mulberry Bush School was founded in 1948 by Barbara DockarDrysdale who had a long and close working relationship with Winnicott; they were strongly influenced by each other’s ideas.
Originally Dockar-Drysdale worked with evacuee children in the post World War Two period. By living alongside the children she developed a psychoanalytically informed theoretical model of residential therapeutic treatment.
