'Enabling Children to Speak About Feelings Through the Arts'
These days are designed to enable anyone working with or living with children to help them speak about feelings through the arts and to know how to respond when they do. Children’s primary language for feelings is not one of literal everyday words; however, enter the realm of image and metaphor, and given the right art media, they often speak profoundly and with ease. By and large, these training days will be structured with case material in the morning, demonstrating how children and teenagers have been enabled to speak about their feelings through a particular art form. In the afternoon there will be time for participants to experience for themselves the communicative power of the art form. Participants will take away a host of safe tools and techniques.
