Play is to the child what talk is to the adult: it is a medium for expressing feelings, exploring relationships, describing experiences, disclosing wishes, and self-fulfillment. Children express themselves and their needs, relive their past, and connect with others through play. It allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength. It is through play that children, at a very early age, engage and interact in the world around them and develop resiliency.In this session, Tammy Schamuhn, Registered Play Therapist, will help attendees better understand play and the benefits to utilizing it as a tool to help child develop resilience and overcome a variety of mental health issues. They will also explore how play is related to development of the brain, and how play deprivation can adversely affect children.
