This enriching and inspiring two day workshop is another in Karen's series of Creative Tools & Ideas trainings* - this time focusing on supporting children & young people around anxiety, worries, fears, and stress, as well as adults and ourselves. Full of ideas and interventions, these days are always exciting and informative as well being a nurturing and encouraging experience for the practitioners attending. *Please note this day does have overlapping tools and strategies from other creative days by Dr Karen Treisman as they are all aligned.

About the course & what it will cover:

This 2-day course will be an opportunity to learn about some creative, physical, sensory, and cognitive ways of supporting children and adolescents (and adults and ourselves) with feelings of anxiety, stress, worries, and fears. Anxiety, stress, and fear are very common and prevalent; even more so in the current context of the pandemic. So, feeling more skilled and confident in this area is hugely beneficial.

This course draws on tools and ideas from the award winning and best-selling Therapeutic treasure Box book, and from the anxiety workbook by Dr Karen Treisman “Binnie the Baboon”. The course will include some Cognitive Behavioural, Narrative Therapy, Creative Therapies, and Sensory ideas. There will be lots of photo examples, tangible worksheets, and stories about the real-world work. Metaphors such as a worry wall, a worry web, a worry wizard, and a worry warrior will be discussed.

The course will be jam packed with some theories and background information; as well as loads of ideas and practical suggestions which can be implemented in daily practice personally and professionally. There will also be a range of tools taught around emotional regulation such as breathing, relaxation, and grounding strategies. This course is suitable and tailored for parents, carers, and all professionals. Although this course will be virtual, it will be informal and creative- with lots of interaction and includes time for breaks and lunch each day.
