Expressive and creative writing in therapy
This one day experiential course will offer therapists a repertoire of ways into using creative and expressive writing with clients.
Often we can write what we cannot say and through the use of narratives and metaphor, it is possible to gain deeper and sometimes surprising insights into our processes. Many people turn to poetry at times of emotional intensity and we will look at how this natural impulse can be harnessed in a therapeutic setting.
We will consider some of the ethical issues around this work and its suitability for different client groups. No previous writing or literary experience is required.
Please Note: There will be a maximum of 18 participants for this workshop.
