Cafe Sci Cambridge: The vital first months of life
Our August speaker Christine O'Farrelly investigates the role of play in children’s development. We’ll explore the effect of play in the earliest aspects of human development, including preventing psychological or psychiatric problems in young children.
As a research associate at the University of Cambridge's Centre for Research on Play in Education, Development & Learning (PEDAL), Christine explores the effectiveness of Positive Parenting programmes used to prevent enduring behavioural problems in young children. Working with colleagues from other institutions, she is part of the pPOD project which studies how the early experiences of young children and families influence child development and parental well-being.
