Drawing and Talking is a safe, easy to learn serial drawing technique for use with primary or secondary age pupils, who have suffered trauma which is affecting their well being or mental health.
Drawing and Talking is a well known and low cost intervention that can be implemented in a school setting and form part of the school offer to meet the personal social and emotional needs for pupils with social and emotional difficulties.
Octavo Partnership and Merton Virtual Behaviour School are very pleased to offer the Drawing & Talking Foundation training course. No previous knowledge, training or experience is necessary. In one day, participants will learn how to put this simple technique into practice. They will learn how to get started, how to run a session and how to deal with common problems which can arise.
Drawing and Talking is a serial drawing technique which takes place over one term. During the training there will be an opportunity to see how drawings change over time as this powerful, yet safe, healing method takes effect.
The theoretical component to the training will teach basic neurobiological theory relating to trauma, how to create a safe and containing space, the importance of endings and losses, how to deal with distress and keep children safe.The experiential component will be an opportunity to develop the technique of mentally ‘Holding’ and ‘Being With’, another human being, an essential part of the therapeutic process. Participants will be expected to draw but no special artistic ability is necessary as it is solely to practise, experience and create the sessions for them and people with whom they will be working.
