Join host Elise Marquam Jahn and Dr. Stuart Brown. Trained in general and internal medicine, psychiatry and clinical research, Dr. Brown first discovered the importance of play by discerning its absence in a carefully studied group of homicidal young males. He later became founding Clinical Director and Chief of Psychiatry at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center and an Associate Professor at UCSD in San Diego, California. During his clinical career, he interviewed thousands of people to capture their play profiles. His cataloging of their profiles demonstrated the active presence of play in the accomplishments of the very successful and also identified negative consequences that inevitably accumulate in a play-deprived life. He believed that play could be the key to discovering the giftedness that is in everyone. With the support of the National Geographic Society and Jane Goodall, Dr. Brown could see play as a long evolved behavior important for well-being and survival of animals. He subsequently came to understand that humans are uniquely designed by nature to enjoy and participate in play throughout life. Learning Well is sponsored by the Integrative Health Education Center of Normandale Community College.
