Play Clips 1 – Understanding Play Types provides an essential resource to exploring one of the key playwork theories. The DVD is accompanied by a set of notes (supplied as a PDF), written by Philip Waters and with a foreword by Bob Hughes. The notes aid further exploration of the different play types and also provide technical information to allow easy use of the DVD. ‘Understanding Play Types’ provides an accessible and flexible audio-visual toolkit for playwork practitioners and play advocates.
