Description

Working Creatively with Children and Families using Play and Drama

This is a one day wonderful workshop you will understand how dramatherapy works and how dramatherapists apply both playful and dramatic techniques in helping entire family units, whether biological or non-biological family members come together and heal disagreements, family rifts, broken attachments and bonds by expressing themselves in new, long lasting, creative and healing ways.

This course will look at a brief history of family therapy in the UK and in the USA and showcase real-life case studies conducted by The AoC / The Arts of Change since 1995.

You will be also be doing hands on experientially activities, using safe, playful, dramatic games and exercises – asl these will assist you in making appropriate referrals to The AoC for family dramatherapy, being able to confidently talk to your clients about this paradigm and complete a simple but effective assessment tool. This course will also assist you, as a professional or volunteer who works with families indirectly or directly in how to work in a free, non-judgemental, non-assumptive manner by helping parents and their children or relatives to adopt and mirror non-confrontational and finger-pointing’ attitudes in a safe, exploratory and creative way.
