Attachment-Based Play: From Mess to Monsters
Saturday 6 April 2019, 10am-4pm
The Actors’ Centre, London
All children need to play, especially to be messy in their playing! Toys and dressing up is great but if children are to learn to create form, build or model, they also need to splodge and splash, rip and tear, pour and squeeze… Out of the chaos they are creating order and experiencing a myriad of physical actions and coordination, as well as most of the senses. Creating form can lead to Monsters, the dark shadowy side that be controlling or controlled. We shall understand aspects of Monster play and personal shadows. We shall look at play for children for whom Messy Play is not helpful.
This is an experiential workshop with underlying theory and application. There will be lots of take-away skills and opportunity for discussion.
Attachment-Based Play: Through the Fairy Door...
Saturday 15 June 2019, 10am-4pm
The Other Place, RSC, Stratford-upon-Avon
This is an attachment-based play course, that develops our right-brain potential for play and stories. Whereas our left-brain supports our logic, numeracy and literacy, our right brain stimulates our magical worlds of ‘let’s pretend’, taking us on a myriad of dances, images and pictures. Often too much emphasis is placed on rote and factual learning at the expense of the curiosity and experiment that is encouraged by our right hemisphere. It is this exploration that enables problem-solving, discovery and research.
