2018 : AN EXCITING YEAR
OF DEVELOPMENT :-
FURTHER EXPANSION OUT OF THE BOX !
Connections with colleagues and friends in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia confirm my strong belief in the collective unconscious
and that which makes us human. The need for positive non-judgemental relationship, tolerance and compassion are the traits that make us humans such a unique animal. In 2018 connections will be deepened and collaborative projects enhanced.
delighted that LandPlay has been received so well in Kuala Lumpur ,Singapore and Jakarta as well as in Dublin and the UK. It seems more and more child therapists are switching on to the need to incorporate the great outdoors into their practice. Whatever the
climate taking children outdoors boosts sensory input, strengthens foundation brain networking and helps us all be more receptive to trusting others.
My collaboration with Circle of Life Rediscovery founder Marina Robb which began many years ago
has continued to evolve and Forestplay a course tailored to meet he needs of Forest School Leaders who find themsselves dealing with children displaying difficult behaviours. Jon Cree hosted the training in March at the fantastice Bishops
Wood Outdoor Education Centre near Stourport. It was a great success ; participants agreed that understanding the underlying causes of irrational and emotionally charged behaviour. The therapeutic methods which were introduced have given them all a new
approach to working with EBD.
Inspiring children to love even a small area of land is crucial - for children's well-being , Mother Earth and all our futures.
