This original book brings together the findings of twelve research projects into children’s play and adults’ relationship, carried out by experienced practitioners in the field from the United States and the United Kingdom. Deploying a wide range of research methods, the studies consider adults’ memories of play, the co-production of spaces where children can play, therapeutic approaches to playwork and well-being, how to support the play of severely disabled children and young people, play and contemporary art practice, and children's use of technology in playgrounds. Moving well beyond the dominant singular voice of developmental psychology, this book will be essential reading for anyone studying or working with children at play.
