Dr Natalie Canning on Empowering Children in their Play

Dr Natalie Canning's most recent book is entitled Children’s Empowerment in Play: Participation, Voice and Ownership published by Routledge in 2020.

In this interview, we discuss what is meant by 'empowering' children in their play and why this is so important.

Dr Canning then goes on to describe her research into Empowering Children in their Play, and the 3 'Super-themes': Participation, Ownership and Voice. Most importantly how we can use these super-themes, without descending into a tick-list mentality, and the benefits for both children and the adults.
