The use of seclusion as an element in a therapeutic management model for ego-deficient children is presented, based on what is known about the normal socialization process and the ego deficits of some psychiatrically hospitalized children. A distinction is made between retaliatory punishment and supportive control techniques. Specific recommendations for the implementation of seclusion in a nurturing environment are made.
