Creating and making helps children to tell their stories, to develop their identity, to trust themselves, to make decisions, to be patient, to cope with disappointment, to be kind to themselves and others, to congratulate themselves and others, to laugh.

Being creative with young people can help to build a trusting relationship. Enabling creativity offers children a route to express their feelings and to process difficult experiences in ways that feel safe to them. Creating and making is a useful way to encourage mindfulness and relaxation. Engaging in creative arts builds confidence and self-esteem.

 

During this training day you will:

  • Learn, or develop your knowledge about the impact of early adverse life experiences on childhood development

  • Discover the value of arts work and creativity as a therapeutic approach to working with children and young people

  • Gain hands-on experience of creating and making

  • Discover a range of ‘easy to do’ activities and projects that you can use in 1 to 1 work, or with a group

  • End the day equipped and excited to begin to confidently use creative arts in your work setting

  • (Probably) be inspired to continue to explore your creative and making potential for yourself
