Event description
The workshop will present a basic therapeutic structure, that can be added to, adapted or changed, using films, books, anime & role playing.

About this event

Speaking as a man……. Welcome to a series of exciting, interesting and intriguing online lectures offering personal and professional insights into how men perceive experiences of boys and men, and the cultural messages that influence behaviour and difficulties.

Against a background of rising rates of mental health problems for men and an increased awareness of gender politics, these lectures provide more than statistics. Speaking from experience, our lecturers will encourage delegates to think more deeply about how we understand boys and men, the strategies that develop their resilience and the questions we need to ask.

The workshop will present a basic therapeutic structure, that can be added to, adapted or changed, using films, books, anime and role playing video games, to create an engaged connection with adolescents.

Sean focuses on two films in particular, ‘Lord of the Flies’ 1962 directed by Peter Brook, and ‘Walkabout’ 1971 directed by Nicholas Roeg. Reference and comparison will be made to the books of the same name and how characters and themes in both films compare to the challenges and dilemmas faced by contemporary anime and video characters, portrayed in 'My Hero Academia' and ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild’.

This workshop demonstrates one way of preparing for the session, introducing the material, and facilitating the collaborative dialogue with clients either one to one or in a group setting. It is hoped that at the end of the workshop participants will be better informed and feel more confident to explore creatively the narratives embedded within a client’s life-issues.
