Course: Devlopment of Play in Childhood (PY-132-1) 

Play, a universal behavior among young mammals, not only represents their abundant energy but also serves as an important form of enactive learning. Children's play helps them to master and make sense of the physical and social worlds in which they live. Human play takes many forms, some of which emerge in a developmental sequence. This course reviews the major forms of play at different stages of childhood as well as their significance for understanding the child. Attention also will be paid to the facilitation of desirable play behavior and the use of play in child psychotherapy. P: PY111. Offered every other year. 1.5 credits
