Why leisure matters and what to do about it: prioritising the joy in life.
25 Nov 2021
Leisure is recognised as a key occupation in life and has a significant impact on our wellbeing, and yet is often neglected in practice. Benita will be presenting findings from her own research with children and young people on the meaning of leisure and combining these with broader literature to demonstrate the power and value of leisure. Some of the ethical issues relating to leisure will be discussed. Finally, effective approaches for assessment and intervention will be explored. While the focus will be on young people, there will be relevance for people across the lifespan.
