In this course Dr. Neufeld will look to make sense of the dynamics of emotion and play in the lives of children. He will focus on the importance of creating playgrounds for the primal emotions of frustration, alarm, intensified pursuit, and the alpha instincts. After describing the importance of emotion in human development and how to best come to terms with this common and necessary experience, he will focus on how to facilitate healthy emotional expression. Among other strategies he will explain how to “play” with emotion: playing with words, playing with roles, playing with monsters, playing with toys, playing with music, playing with voices and playing with separation. He will tease apart emergent play, expressive play and social play. Dr. Neufeld will propose ways for making room for emotion and play to dance together to help promote optimum conditions for the mental and emotional well-being of our children.
