Wrestling, Battling, and G-U-Ns

Wrestling, Battling, and G-U-Ns: Understanding Aggressively Themed Play to Support Healthy Outcomes for Children*: Care providers of young children often struggle with the idea of aggressively themed play. This workshop will focus on knowing what the “experts” have to say; understanding why children seek out these play themes; knowing when the themes are emotionally “safe;” and supporting children in developmentally healthy play. *This workshop is best offered in conjunction with the “A Child’s Work: Understanding the importance of play and how to nurture it in young children” topic outlined above, but can also be offered as a stand alone workshop.
