Event description

Description

This session has designed for anyone whose personal or professional life brings them into contact with children and young people of any age.


There is growing concern about the diminishing opportunities for our young people to play, and the impact this is having on their learning, social and emotional health; Increasingly, play deprivation is being linked to depression and we are now able to explain why.


Recent neuroscientific research is showing us that; not only are we born with whole structures in our brains dedicated to play, but that these are active throughout our whole lives, meaning we are never ‘too old’ to play!
Play is fun but; contrary to what we may believe about play ‘getting in the way’ of learning, play is actually an essential to learning!


This illuminating session will help you to understand how the human brain is wired to play; from birth throughout childhood, adolescence and life; and why-when denied the opportunity to respond to this primitive urge-many children & adolescents go on to have problems with their learning, social wellbeing and mental ill-health.


What ever the age of the young people you live or work with, we will explain how to tap into the 'playful brain' to turbo-charge learning power, strengthen sensory processing, generate healthy biochemistry in the brain and body, and to support all round mental health.

Refreshments are available throughout the session.
