Webinar: Navigating Healthy Power Play with Dr. Jamie Howard
ONLINE WEBINAR , 520 8th Avenue 15th Floor , New York, New York 10018
Dr. Jamie Howard, Senior Clinical Psychologist, from the Child Mind Institute will be presenting a developmental lens on a variety of different aspects of power play that children naturally engage in: fantasy play, superhero play, gunplay, exclusive play, and name-calling. Educators and parents will gain tools and a better understanding of when and how to intervene in play; in the classroom or at home. In addition, Dr. Howard will address how to support children as they navigate processing their world and their roles in it.
