Therapeutic play is an open group that gives participants opportunities to engage in spontaneous and improvised playfulness as a way of learning about themselves in relation to others.
There is no agenda or expectation in therapeutic play, as participants learn to accept whatever emerges from their playful encounter.
Therapeutic play is embedded in the growing evidence that nurturing a sense of play is essential to our mental well-being and our ability to build and sustain relationships with others.
Therapeutic play is open to all, regardless of experience or background.
Therapeutic play will be held at The Place Theatre in Bedford on Friday 27th September, 4th and 11th October, 1st, 8th and 15th November 2019. All sessions between 11.00am and 12.00pm.
