It’s no secret that play increases learning and creativity. We also know that play helps build healthy teamwork and intimacy. But did you know that we use play to learn how to give and receive, how to trust, how to be kind, and how to heal? Play can help people grow and develop a sense of self-esteem and can help us to recover from trauma and allow those parts of us that are arrested in development to grow into healthy adults. Play is called the greatest gift of childhood, and can continue to be a great gift to adults. Join Beyond Abuse Radio this Thursday as we explore the world of play and how it can help us become whole people.
