Professional Devopment Example

In this PD example, I was requested to provide foundational Creative Arts Therapy techniques for Primary School teachers and Wellness

coordenators. 

The learning goal was to add to the already vast set of skills and aid communication around challenging topics with their students utilising creative processes and mind body connection.

Creatve Arts Therapies is an experiential modality were learning is doing. You will see role play, and personal work in this workshop. This practical componant of this workshop highlights understanding of the task that developes from hands on experience.

 

I provide overheads during workshops and e-notes at least 2 weeks prior. I encourage participants to take their own notes. Experiences may differ to between peers. We may have our own special interests and biases. It is often a valuable expeience to exchage  personal insights and new knowlege.
