Code: OTSA/18/97 Drawing and Talking Foundation Course

Drawing and Talking is a safe, easy to learn method of working with children, teenagers and young adults, to help with underlying emotional difficulties that may be affecting their learning and behaviour.  The core of the method is encouraging the pupil to draw with a person with whom they feel comfortable, at the same time each week, and this person asking some non-intrusive questions about the pupil’s drawings

Over time, a symbolic resolution is found to old conflicts, old trauma is healed, and the pupil is more able to control their behaviour and better able to access the curriculum

The foundation course consists of a full day’s training and will be led by Jane Woollard a much valued trainer who has delivered the Drawing and Talking Foundation course to thousands of delegates. Having used this technique with hundreds of children in a mainstream setting, Jane's insight into the theory underpinning the Drawing and Talking technique is invaluable to the participants she now trains.

It is suitable for anyone who is working with vulnerable children and young people. No previous knowledge, training or experience is necessary

 

 

Cost £185 plus VAT per participant includes refreshments
