Friday Lunchtime Reading Group, 5 April 2019
The Spontaneity Theory of Child Development
Moderator: Jaya Narayan
In this April's Friday lunchtime reading group, we will discuss spontaneity from the lens of child development. Moreno, in this chapter, draws many parallels from child development and neuroscience. He expands on the journey of an infant, totally helpless at birth but in due course finding his/her place in the world. He says, " a minimum of spontaneity is already required of him on the first day of his life."
