Keep Calm and Play On 2013 - Providence Children's Museum (90 minute workshop)
Playwork is a profession wholly dedicated to supporting children's freely chosen, self-directed play in a variety of settings. Playwork approaches are used with children aged 0-19, and reframe such issues as challenging behavior and children's rights in unique and powerful ways. With its professional bodies, training structures and educational and theoretical frameworks firmly established in the UK, Germany, Japan and elsewhere, playwork is still "emerging" in the United States. This is an unusual opportunity to hear a widely recognized and experienced playworker and playwork trainer speak on such topics as: what playwork offers, some of the key names and theories, and how playwork approaches can be combined with other ways of working as well as delving into deeper topics like risk assessments and challenging behaviour.
Reserve your place today for your 90 minute Marc Armitage workshop on "Play For Its Own Sake: a playworking approach" at Providence Children's Museum!
