Drawing on the latest play-work research and practice from around the world, this interactive workshop will cover the role of physical and emotional risk-taking in child-directed free play. Participants will critically reflect upon the impact our risk-averse society has on these opportunities, including a self-assessment of personal comfort levels. Using risk-benefit assessments, participants will take practical steps to identify where and how children in their care can test their physical and emotional limits, while reducing the likelihood or severity of harm.
