Reflective Playwork provides an introduction to playwork values, principles and practice for all who work with children. It recognizes that play is a need for all, and seeks to encourage the provision of time and space for all children to freely enjoy its benefits.In a world where we are ever seeking to protect our children and to encourage their educational progress, it is often overlooked that the need for play is as important as the need for food and sleep. Play deprivation can result in a child having less energy for education, a lower ability to use creative and imaginative ways of problem solving, a poorer self image, being less able to cope with the stresses and strains of life and sometimes being more likely to look for ‘kicks' in anti-social ways.This bookencourages a greater understanding of play from the child's perspective, and suggests ways in which adults can support and enhance play. It covers: Playwork principles and practice Play theory The child Playwork values and practice Playwork and society Playwork education, training and continuing professional development Quality and management of playwork It is written for those who are instinctively, or otherwise, looking to promote and celebrate the need for play in all of their work with children, and who see their role as supportive rather than supervisory. Further, it is for those who recognize that the rewards of working with children come as a privilege.Reflective Playwork is for the playworker and for all others who work with children - such as childcare practitioners, teaching assistants, health workers, social workers, teachers and those in management - who are looking to understand and adopt, at appropriate times, the values and principles in their own settings.>
