We'll explore how play is changing the context in the community-building work that Jorge Burciaga and Miguel Cortes are doing in Juarez, Mexico, as well as how play is used as a tool in therapy work at the Fred Newman Social Therapy Center in Juárez.
Jorge Burciaga-Montoya is a founding member of the Fred Newman Social Therapy Center in Juarez, Mexico, teaches in the education department at the Universidad Autonoma de Ciudad Juarez, and is on the staff of CASA (Centro de Asesoría y Promoción de Juvenil, A.C.), a non-profit with a strong presence in the poor communities of Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, where he is working with high schools to incorporate social-emotional learning.
Miguel Eduardo Cortes-Vázquez is an educatior, therapist and percussionist living in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. We works at CASA (Centro de Asesoría y Promoción de Juvenil, A.C.), where he has led efforts to create play centers and promote play, and teaches community education at the University of Juarez.
It's good to talk.
