2016 Play's the Thing: Therapeutic Aspects of Play (April 9 - 10) & Facilit...
Facilitating Play for Young Children is a week-long intensive program that is being offered over the course of two weekends (April 9-10 & April 29-May 1) for educators, graduate students, playworkers in outdoor parks, children’s museums, and playgrounds, social workers, play therapists, and child life specialists, who are interested in learning more about the importance of play in the life of a child. Through lectures led by experts in the field, the reading and discussion of articles, hands-on seminars, and observations, the program explores play in learning, therapeutic, and recreational contexts through an interdisciplinary lens. Participants also engage in field observations of children at Sarah Lawrence College’s Early Childhood Center and at Community Adventure Play Experiences. Scholarships are available for New York City Public School Teachers through a grant from the Seth Sprague Education and Charitable Foundation.
