IPA USA Conference 2024

September 25 @ 8:00 am - September 28 @ 5:00 pm

Dr. Rhea will attend and present at International Play Association – USA’s annual conference in Greenville, SC.

Title: Why adults need outdoor play as much as kids: Attitude adjustments are required!

Description: We always think children need outdoor play the most because it’s essential for their physical and brain development, BUT many adults today have not had play opportunities as children and now are faced with unhealthy, stressful lives. This presentation will focus on the adult angle and how to change behaviors of a culture, not just a person to physically move, get outside, sleep uninterrupted, and eat smart. These concepts are challenging, but the LiiNK Project team has been studying what it takes to change these adult behaviors in order to be effective with children. These strategies will be shared and practiced.
