Join our workshop to learn how to use creative psychological tools in your work with adults, children, adolescents, groups and relationships.

Our creative tools are unique colourful metaphoric cards that have developed especially for therapeutic work to help stimulate creativity, imagination and to increase communication between the therapist and clients in individual sessions, family therapy or group settings.

Why using creative methods?
When clients are referred (or self-referred) for therapy, they typically feel anxious and are reluctant to talk directly about their feelings or thoughts. It can be with children or adults. Sometimes the issue is so painful, they cannot find the right words or description. However, activities that are creative and play-based can engage the clients for safely express themselves.

Workshop audience:
Psychotherapists, Psychologists, Social Workers, Psychodramatists, Therapists, Mental Health Professionals, Counsellors & Kinesiologists.

Goals:
Become familiar with new resources that can enrich the therapeutic experience.
Experiment with decks of illustrated cards as ways of facilitating both the therapist’s work and the clients therapeutic process.
Discover the power of images as a means of expression and processing of emotional issues.
Explore different ways of working with groups and adults on issues such as relationships, grief, stress, trauma and much more.

By using the cards:
Clients can increase their awareness and understand of life events, behavioural patterns and the influence of the past on the present.
