Play has been described as essential to humans as sleep. Children head for the playground to engage in a frivolous bout of fun, while executives take part in an outdoor retreat to team-build and network. All Work and No Play? The Power of Play! reviews the neurological, social, and cognitive benefits of play and offers tips concerning how to incorporate elements of play into all types of programs for individuals of all ages. Featuring a breakout session at the 2009 ACSM Health & Fitness Summit, the DVD discusses the fact that play does not discriminate based on age, gender, disability, education, ethnicity, or income level.
