Using Creative Approaches in Therapy
Sat 8 July 2017, 09:00 – 13:30 BST
This half day workshop will provide an introduction to creative therapies and look at how you might introduce these approaches in your practise. It will include a number of interactive activities, case studies and discussions to experience and explore a number of creative techniques, alongside looking at the possible benefits and appropriateness of using creativity within therapy. It will look at ways to enhance and compliment your current approach and perhaps help you identify new ways of working with clients when ‘just words’ are not always enough.
