Attachment-Based Play:
’Back to the Toys’
Saturday 12 October 2019, 10am-4pm
The Other Place, RSC, Stratford-upon-Avon

This one day course provides theory and practice on the importance of toys and playful objects. The growing child slowly expands their multiplicity of feelings beyond their primary attachment figure to both other significant people and to special toys.

We shall explore our own experience of toys and pleasure as well as disappointments. We will discover the important connection between attachment and playful objects, including some messy play!

There will be opportunities for discussion of practice as well as the opportunity for individual tutorials with Dr Sue Jennings. There will also be resources for purchase on the day including books and puppets.

A Limbic Model of Attachment-Based-Play
Saturday 12 December 2019, 10am-4pm
The Other Place, RSC, Stratford-upon-Avon

No Mess? No Stickiness? Try Construction! A one day course with Dr Sue Jennings, authority on Neuro-Dramatic-Play.

Many children, teenagers and adults avoid anything messy. Some children won’t drink orange juice with bits, others will only drink it with bits! Textures in taste as well as messy activities make a big impact, especially with children on the autistic spectrum.

This one day workshop explores the underlying theory of mess avoidance and it’s possible roots in early adverse experience. Too much mess or chaos can be overwhelming; sticky or slimy textures can have many associations; chaos rather than order can be a very frightening experience.

In the limbic mode of construction play there is the opportunity to put everything back together again both in the lives of people at any age and the surroundings that may have become hostile. The limbic area of the brain is where we experience nurture, feelings and the building of relationships.
