Advanced Knowledge in Drawing and Talking

1 day (9.00am to 3.30pm)
£299 + VAT (per delegate)

A one-day programme providing participants with a deeper understanding of the therapeutic process involved in the practice of Drawing and Talking, and the theory which underpins the technique. You will delve deeper into Jungian Theory to explore the use of archetypes and patterns that arise in children’s drawings, and learn about development and movement along the Ego-Self Axis

Participants will learn how to run group sessions utilising the Drawing and Talking principles. In a group environment, children, young people, and adults can become more aware of their emotions and develop an understanding of how to process them. Group sessions also serve as an outlet where they can share feelings with peers and in turn, understand that others can feel the same.

The Advanced Knowledge Training covers the SDQ clinical assessment tool, which is used in many schools and clinical settings. Understanding the results of this questionnaire, and how to pro-actively select the correct interventions based on outcomes, is fundamental to the well-being professional’s time and resources to meet individual needs.

I absolutely love these training sessions! ... I highly recommend doing this course as it takes you even deeper into the theory behind Drawing and talking and opens you up to even more ways of thinking and working with children and young people. You have to give it a go as it will have an amazing impact on the children you work with.
