A practical presentation and workshop on attachment-based play as an intervention in child development and anxiety. Neuro-Dramatic-Play has been shown to be effective in re-creating attachment as well as reducing anxiety in all age groups. There will be a slide presentation and then a short practical workshop which will provide take-away skills for people to use in their practice.
Anxiety levels have increased in all age group with individuals and families in post Covid times. Much of the anxiety is caused by uncertainty and fear of loss, as well as economic hardship. In households where there is domestic violence there has been an increase.
Neuro-Dramatic-Play allows a safe externalisation through playfulness and non-verbal understanding of process.
