As professionals it is possible to promote resilience in the children we work with (Fletcher and Sarkar, 2012), play is an integral part of this process. Child development theorists understand that play is the way children learn to make sense of the world around them (Vygotsky 1978, Bruner 1976, Moyles 1991, Bruce 1991) but it is also a powerful and simple tool which can be used to support the development of resilience. This workshop will provide practical strategies, underpinned by theories and concepts, to support the development of resilience through play in children and young people.
