Play is the Rocket Science of Human Development
In this talk we will address exactly how play is therapeutic and why it is the best way to support kids in finding creative resolutions to their struggles. This is an especially hands on talk, offering parents the opportunity to play throughout the lecture. By the end of the talk parents will have some idea of how to see what children are accomplishing in different kinds of play and how to set a child up with a 'play task' that may best support their current struggles. We will talk about developmental stages and touch on the neurobiology of of play.
