Abstract

The role of play in Brazilian children’s hospitals is highlighted, as well as the perspective of humanization in Brazil.

To understand the issue of play in Brazil, it is important to discuss hospitals in their social context, their history, current roles in children’s care, humanization history and child development, according to the approaches of Piaget and Winnicott that are used in our culture.
