This workshop is based on the 8 Playwork Principals (Playwork Principles Scrutiny Group, Cardiff 2005) that Playworkers in the UK have agreed are central to what they do. The Playwork principals establish the professional and ethical framework for playwork and as such must be regarded as a whole. The principles describe what is unique about play and playwork and provide the playwork perspective for working with young children and people.
This workshop will provide an overview of the Playwork Principles. International resources as well as links to local experts will be provided to each participant.
