PCWO-323: PRESS PAUSE AND PLAY: REBRANDING CHILDHOOD FOR COPING, RESILIENCE AND WELLBEING

Course: HALF DAY COURSE

TIME: 09:00 – 12:00   |  MEETING ROOM: Dubai F

WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT:

Currently there are millions of adults who are experiencing a midlife crisis who wish they were still children! Yet ironically, children who should be enjoying their childhood are behaving like mini adults.

What is going on here?
We are all created for play, connection and community. Yet with the toxic demands of living in an online world, overcoming a recent pandemic and many other threats to their wellbeing, children are losing a sense of belonging, are feeling isolated, anxious and disconnected. 

What can you do about it?
With play being the language of childhood, this workshop will equip you to learn the fundamentals of “speaking” this innovative ‘language’ fluently. Whether you are a parent of toddlers or teenagers, or working with children in a professional capacity, you will leave with a tangible toolkit to facilitate your own play based activities. Not only will you “Press Pause and Play’ through experiential interactive learning, but you will also have the opportunity to reflect on the meaning of coping, resilience and wellbeing for families in a global context. The aim is for you to become an active participant in assisting children to connect to their inner leader and to make better lifestyle choices for their wellbeing.

Will you be part of the solution?
With so much negativity in our world, now is the time to take a look at childhood through a different lens and be part of the solution to rebranding childhood for happiness, inspiration and motivation. Now is your time to “Press Pause and Play” as you learn the true language of childhood

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:

Parents, Teachers, Social Workers, Psychologists, Occupational Therapists, Doctors, Pediatricians, Psychiatrists. Speech Therapists, Sports Coaches, Au Pairs
