Abstract

"This paper is a reflection on a Developmental Movement Play (DMP) programme based on relationship play (Sherborne, 1990) for parents and young children experiencing emotional, behavioural and/or mental health difficulties. This practitioner-led research explores how using ourselves to communicate through movement can transform lives and well-being. This study demonstrates how taking part in physically active, non-verbal relationship play helps to improve the lives of vulnerable families. The process is discussed in light of the participants’ relationships with each other and the changes brought about through their shared movement experiences."
