Making Sense of Play
In this two-hour seminar, Dr. Gordon Neufeld explores what play is, the benefits of play, and what is needed for children to play. Dr. Neufeld explains that play is not an option; it is a developmental requirement. Through various examples, he explores the three basic tenants of play: 1) Play is not work, 2) Play is expressive and exploratory, and 3) Play is “not for real”.SKU: 8-V-803
