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.
"Thank you so much, really enjoyed every aspect. Sophia made me feel at ease with activities - I've definitely learnt a lot... Sophia made sure all our experiential activities were relational to use in our workplaces and we were able to understand how to use the arts... I love the hands on aspects, fantastic day."

This will be an experiential day introducing the use of drama and masks in helping children and adolescents to explore their feelings and try out different ways of being (rehearsal of the possible). Participants will have the chance to experience the potency of enactment to bring about communication and change. The day will include examples of case material and will give the opportunity for people to share and think about the potential of using drama and mask work in their situations.
