Principles of Play: What's the Nervous System Got to Do With It?

McKenna Hall 215/216

What does childhood play have to do with the development of the nervous system and emotional regulation throughout life? On the surface, these topics might not seem related, but it turns out that earnest childhood play can contribute to strong foundations for the human brain’s ability to widen its “window of tolerance” and build life-long skills of emotional regulation. Using the Principles of Trauma-Informed practice, this session will weave these seemingly discrete topics into an integrated whole, with the hope of offering youth sports professionals a deeper understanding of player and self.
