This program will focus on children's and adolescents' play as an essential ingredient of healthy emotional development and integrated personality and whole relatedness.
Each week we will focus on a child's phase-specific development and highlight, discuss and explore the specific ”play tasks” that is relevant for that phase.
Participants will have a greater understanding of the essential elements of play and how it directly effects a child's and adolescent's emotional development. Also, the notion of spontaneous gesture will be explored and understood as a goal of emotional development.
Other topics to be explored will include:
· Precociousness and it's vicissitudes;
· Traumatic Experience, Cumulative Trauma, and Pre-mature exposure as it pertains to the overwhelm of the ego and the subsequent foreclosure of symbolism;
· Concreteness and lack of spontaneity...(Anxious and Autistic States), and others.
