Designed to be a happy place of imagination and cooperation, a playground is too often a danger zone of intimidation and violence. This program explores the educational value and social dynamics of play while emphasizing the importance of a supportive adult presence in the playground environment. Games and techniques used by teachers and psychologists to help children develop interpersonal skills, articulate their feelings, and reflect on their behavior are included, as is information on playground design.
