How to create and use stories that help emotionally distressed children
Live online – on Tuesday 11th August.
About this course
Stories play a crucial role in children’s development – through the ways the different characters think, act and overcome difficulties, they gain important templates for understanding the world and dealing with the challenges and situations they will meet in life – both now and in the future.
And, as all children love stories, this natural affinity provides us with an incredibly powerful, non-intrusive and non-directive way to help emotionally distressed and abused young people.
What will you learn?
On this course, you will learn innovative new ways to engage with those who are often hard to reach and to help distressed children deal with the experiences they have had, whilst also offering them hope, understanding and new ways of thinking and feeling about life.
You may well be surprised at how quickly positive psychological changes occur as a result of the stories you yourself will create and tell.
With countless children have been badly affected by the lockdown and coronavirus pandemic, and we still don’t know what the long term effects will be.
This inspiring, interactive workshop with Pamela Woodford gives you powerful therapeutic tools which anyone can learn and adapt for the children they work with or care for.
You will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and we will break into small groups for the exercises.
All you need is a quiet place to watch, a computer or tablet and a strong internet signal, the rest is easy – simply book your place as normal or contact us on the details above and we will email you details of how to join the Zoom workshop.
