In the basic storyline common to the whole class, Susan was a child who had taken a dangerous poison from her father’s home laboratory and was in danger of death, and, the children speculated, of punishment. In their story she was saved and not punished. This was the children’s decision. Susan was the star part, totally absorbed as the child aged 2 (in the other groups no one elected to be as young as 2). ’ she said when the enactment was over, and she was glowing, not with her customary belligerence and fury, but with excitement and pleasure.
Here in these layers we can discern potential space, the space where things become possible, where there is ‘potential’. In potential space there is the potential for ‘potency’, for creativity and growth. At this point we can link up with Slade’s notion of child drama being an art-form (Slade 1954). Both Winnicott’s perception of potential space being the place of play which itself forms the basis for cultural experience and Slade’s that the play of children developed into drama becomes an art-form, are integral to understanding the dramatherapy context.
In the drama she had not died but been rescued and recovered her loving parents rather than being persecuted, punished or abandoned. Winnicott locates potential space in the dimension of the separating away from mother. In relation to Susan it is worth looking at these words. The potential space happens only in relation to a feeling of confidence on the part of the baby, that is, confidence related to the dependability of the motherfigure or environmental elements, confidence being the evidence of dependability that is becoming introjected.
