Creative Engagement in Therapy (Videoconference)
Engaging family members can be challenging and not all members relate equally well when only counselling techniques are used in therapy. Using visual and interactive tasks adds another way to engage, elicit and communicate in assessment and therapy. This workshop will provide an opportunity to consider how to apply creative tasks in assessment and therapy, using visual, auditory and kinaesthetic modalities. The workshop will introduce the participant to various techniques and tools that can easily be used when working across the lifespan.These ideas can be applied in adjunct to your current ways of working and draw on Narrative, Bowen and Structural models of therapy. This workshop will provide an experiential sampling of different therapeutic interventions that you can apply immediately in your clinical practice.
By the end of the workshop you will:
- Be able to identify and describe a range of ‘non-traditional’ therapeutic interventions
- Have a tool box of materials and strategies to work in a more creative way with clients
- Develop skills to be more flexible in practice and apply alternative ways of working with clients who do not respond to ‘talk therapy’
- Develop confidence with clients using a broader range of interventions.
