About this product
- DescriptionThis comprehensive book explores theories and practice of play. It suggests that media influences have a profound effect on behaviour, and by stressing the importance of understanding play as a chart of development, and drawing links between home, school, clinics and therapy, he offers the prospect of an understanding of delinquency and difficulty.
