About The Event

This workshop will present an array of different creative and practical ideas and tools for talking about and expressing a range of feelings. These can be used in direct work with children and adults (including some virtually); as well as to bring in some expressive and creative tools in team meetings, supervision, and assessments.

This is about finding alternative more engaging, fun, thought provoking and creative ways to ask the questions such as “How are you feeling about…?”, “How do you feel?” etc. This will also shine a light on some key messages we need to teach children about feelings; as well as some core therapeutic skills and ways of being. Ideas using miniatures, building blocks, masks, drawing, games, worksheets, cards, and much more will be shared. These ideas are from the bestselling treasure collection including “The Therapeutic Treasure Box”.Karen will also share her well respected 7 E model for enriching and expanding therapeutic conversations. There will also be time for reflection, questions, embedding one’s learning and sharing and learning from the group.

There will be virtual break rooms and several opportunities to stretch our legs and have a break from the screen.
