December 2019 Third Wave Grand Rounds: The Psychology of Play with Eve Blouin-Hudon Ph.D.

About the Webinar:

The psychology of play and imagination can not only be applied to ongoing projects, but are also very relevant to wellbeing and exploration of self. In this discussion, I will talk about how play and imagination can be used to deconstruct how we perceive the world; facilitate flexible thinking to adapt to change and complexity; increase pleasure and absorption in everyday activities; and understand problems in intuitive ways. To this end, Eve Blouin-Hudon will review relevant literature and demonstrate hands-on activities that can be used to construct a psychological playspace conducive to wellbeing.
