Many people feel they work better under pressure, but if you need to think creatively, a relaxed environment will work far better. That’s how Dr Heidi Edmundson approaches play, and importantly makes the distinction that although play can be childlike, it’s not childish.

Things to consider

  • We need connection as human beings, and it can sometimes be achieved by something as simple as briefly removing a mask.
  • By following a step-by-step process of curiosity, Heidi became more able to trust herself.
  • Trust can help overcome skepticism.
  • The outcomes of play are not always directly quantifiable, but no less valuable.
