    RUNNING GROUPS WITH CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE – NICK LUXMOORE @ Churchdown Community Centre
    Jul 5 @ 10:00 am – 4:30 pm
    RUNNING GROUPS WITH CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE – NICK LUXMOORE @ Churchdown Community Centre

    About the course

    We live in groups and we depend absolutely on groups. We are social as well as solitary. Sometimes, when things go wrong, we need time on our own and help from another person. But, at other times, our problems can only be addressed by working with and through the groups we are naturally part of. In groups we can practise living and practise relationships; we can get feedback and develop our confidence; we can learn to understand and interact with other people.

    This workshop is aimed at professionals who would like to start running groups with young people and at professionals already running groups who would like to develop their skills further. We will be imagining running groups whose purposes are to address issues such as bullying, anger, self-esteem, assertiveness, sexuality. There will be some theoretical input but the emphasis for the day will be practical and experiential – learning how to structure groups in order for young people to feel safe, learning useful exercises and having the chance to try them out.

    TOOLKIT TOP-UP - SUE COOK & HELEN FERREIRA @ No 1 Business Centre

    About the course

    A workshop for anyone who wants to top up their toolkit and come away with lots of new ideas and ways of working.

    This workshop offers a very interactive, experiential day looking at symbolic and creative strategies that are equally useful for children, young people and adult clients. The day will involve demonstrations, opportunities to get involved and to reflect on your learning and how each activity can be adapted for each client group.

    We will explore sand tray work, shells, stones, buttons and the use of masks along with plenty of ideas about how to engage your clients and enable them to reframe ideas, shift perspectives and externalise emotions.

    The aim of the day is that you can go away with a much more robust toolkit that you can put into practice with your clients straight away. We will show you that the equipment needed doesn’t have to be expensive or take up lots of space in order to get good results. You will be provided with a folder of outlining the activities we have covered so that you don’t need to write notes during the day as well as many useful resources.
