This highly practical hands-on course is particularly suited to people who want to experience and practise a variety of creative action methods in group work to explore issues, make theatre or work within challenging contexts.


Who is this for?
People interested in using drama and theatre as a tool to explore personal and social issues, and for people who want to gain new skills to fulfil their obligation and commitment to the people they serve. The course covers exercises with explanations, instructions and suggestions to help you develop your own style and approach. The creative action methods can be readily adapted to a wide range of settings with adults and young people. If your working in closed institutions or with vunerable and volatile groups or reluctant, awkward and difficult people then this is for you!

The course is a resource for: performers, youth workers, social/health workers, PSHE specialists, drama graduates, project managers, community workers, artists, workshop leaders, teachers, theatre practitioners, creative art therapists, counsellors, mental health workers, team builders and special needs workers.

No previous drama experience is necessary however a willingness to actively explore new methods of working is an essential requirement. This will also be an opportunity for professional development, networking and skill sharing so as to enable continued high standards of good practice.

All Participants receive a free TRAINING MANUAL on completion.

i thought both the morning and afternoon sessions were very useful. The session with Tony was great. He showed us lots of exercises to do with resistant learners and ways to get more people engaged. He also gave us some good advice.

It was really useful learning so many games, and exercises and hearing Tony's approach to delivery. Asking the participants to analyse the game afterward being a major part of the exercises, and his use of 'layers' was really interesting. I particularly liked the discussion that comes with Egg, Bird and Supreme Being, and the potential for interesting results and good engagement with the £5k pitch activity. It was good that he pointed out that this could be disappointing at first, but perseverance can make it a rich exercise.

"This has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life, which will continue to resonate for years to come."

"Excellent course - well facilitated, great material and very inspiring”.

“Lots of practical skills and good coaching. I definitely got what I wanted and loads more!"

"I feel confident because of the time spent practising - will definitely recommend to others."

"You established a context that was safe and deeply encouraging. Your openness and joy were infectious."

"There was a groundedness and realness about the whole experience, which was a rare treat."


"You’re holding of the group felt very strong I had the time and space to deal with some difficult things happening at home."
