Location: Zoom
Price: Members: £95 I Non-members: £125 I Students £65
Learn about Narrative Therapy and Dramatherapy, using aspects of your own stories and creating alternatives and how you would like your life to be, through non-verbal techniques. Gain a new perspective using the 'Tree of Life'.
Full Description
By using the Tree of Life, participants gain non-verbal insights in to who they are, who they want to be as a person and professional, and how they can work with the tree of life with their client group. Symbolically the participants think about their roots:
  • Family history 
  • The ground (current situation) 
  • Trunk (qualities and strong parts)  
  • Benches (wishes and dreams) 
  • Leaves (the ones who are special to us)
  • Fruit (symbolic gifts from others)  

The tree is first drawn with different art materials, and after this the tree will be given further shape with dramatherapy techniques.
