The workshop will explore the U.K’s political agenda regarding therapy with children and young people; the impact this might have on our profession and how they can be integrated as part of our professional practice in sessions.
We aim to have fun as well as build knowledge, confidence and competencies with different approaches for assessment that can be used in Dramatherapy. We will teaching traditional tools that are used and recognised by medical and educational professionals as well as thinking about creative means of assessment.
