Many psychologists of children have addressed how play can progress development, have the effect to cure, and be significant in treatment for children.
Each of us, family, nurses of nursery schools, teachers and psychologists have the chance to play with children.This workshop is planned to aim for being able to care for our children in our daily lives.
In this workshop, we will use a toy that we all have in our homes and work places, ‘blocks’. Dr. Kawamura had revised the technique she had learned from Dr. Douglas Kong , a child psychiatrist in Singapore, to a daily life method.
We would like you to experience practically how effective it is to touch our hearts through playing with blocks. You will be able to encounter the psychological significance of play. We hope you to provide to your children a gentle time of play. Also, hope that this shall become the first step of psychological support to someone dear to your heart.
