“I don’t totally get the Lego Movie craze that has been all the rage the past few years. I mean, why is Lego Star Wars or Lego Batman a thing instead of normal animation if you’re going to do a kids’ version of a popular movie? The only thing I can figure out is that human beings, at our very core were just meant to play with things. I guess the desire to engage with an infinite variety of creative toys is just part of being in God’s image—it’s hard-wired into us. Whether that explains the Lego movies or not, it definitely explains why a lot of people in the therapeutic world have seized on play (and, in fact, a lot of other hands-on activities) as therapies. Please join Julie Lowe and I as we talk about her work in thinking and re-thinking play therapy.” Host, Alasdair Groves
