Youell, Biddy (2008) The importance of play and playfulness. European Journal of Psychotherapy and Counselling, 10 (2). pp. 121-129. ISSN 13642537Full text not yet available from this repository.
This paper focuses on the roots of play and playfulness in children's early experience of relationships. The paper seeks to argue that the current debate about the loss of safe outdoor play spaces and the dangers of over-reliance on digital entertainments sometimes neglects the fact that play and playfulness are developmental achievements and that there are huge variations in children's capacity to make use of the opportunities they have.
