The role of play in human and animal development is well established, and its educational and therapeutic value is widely supported in the literature. This innovative book extends the play debate by assembling and examining the many pieces of the play puzzle from the perspective of public health. It tackles the dual aspects of art and science which inform both play theory and public health policy, and advocates for a playful pursuit of public health, through the integration of evidence from parallel scientific and creative endeavors. Drawing on international research evidence, the book addresses some of the major public health concerns of the 21st century obesity, inactivity, loneliness and mental health advocating for creative solutions to social disparities in health and wellbeing. From attachment at the start of life to detachment at lifes ending, in the home and in the workplace, and across virtual and physical environments, play is presented as vital to the creation of a new culture of health. This book represents a valuable resource for students, academics, practitioners and policy-makers across a range of fields of interest including play, health, the creative arts and digital and environmental design.
