We are delighted to offer delegates a full range of training events. These comprise one day conferences, training days and lectures. With our conferences we bring you the very best brains in the mental health field from all over the world. Over the years we have welcomed speakers from a great many countries, including several hundred acclaimed child mental health professionals from the UK who have offered lectures and workshops. Our training days are all designed to enable children to thrive with particular emphasis on helping children to speak about feelings rather than acting them out or bottling them up.
All training days are run by senior Arts Psychotherapists with years of experience in working with children in both education and psychotherapy. Finally, our lectures celebrate the work of true pioneers in their particular field. Speakers are all of international acclaim.
"Ellie is an outstanding trainer and a truly inspirational person. Everytime I see her talk I feel like it changes my life a little bit." (delegate, previous training day)
Since the early days of the cave, fire stories have helped children and adults to make sense of their lives. Metaphor, symbol, archetypes and the familiar shape of a beginning, a middle and an end all help to make stories powerful containers for both the child and the practioner. In this training you will learn how to use stories and storytelling to enable children to communicate deeply about their feelings and their lives. You will gain an understanding of the profoundly important role that storytelling has played in human development and how to harness this to support children to develop a coherent narrative of self. Experiential practise will build your confidence in both telling stories and supporting children to tell their own stories in creative and rich ways.
