THERAPEUTIC ASSESSMENT USING THE CRRES MODEL

1   Full day intensive training course for EPs

Applications are invited from Educational Psychologists for a participative day of skills development and experiential learning covering all aspects of the model.

Aims

  • to provide clear information examples and demonstration of the fully range of therapeutic assessment activities across the dimensions of therapeutic dialogue

  • to provide examples of CRRES activities to enable communication about an array of themes and issues for all ages

  • to provide EPs with experience of using therapeutic assessment activities and key humanistic arts psychotherapy facilitation skills, with fellow delegates (serving as clients), such that they have personal experience of their impact and feel ready to apply them in their work.

Duration: 9am - 5pm, single day

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The ideal model for learning and applying the full CRRES model, is for an EP service to commission the training for their whole team.  This enables ongoing support to be readily available through peer supervision structures.  I would be happy to discuss options, if you would like to contact me.  Training for groups of 6 or more can be arranged now for delivery at services' chosen venue from April to December 2020.

EPs can apply on an individual basis to join a regional course, taking place at various venues across the country in the coming year, depending on expressions of interest.  Places cost £150 each.

 

The next regional courses are planned for South London on June 15th 2020

and the Warwickshire/Birmingham area in Summer  2020.  Details to follow.

2     Make and Draw activities for use in trauma informed assessment

A more gently paced 3/4 day course, 10am - 4pm, covering skills development and experiential learning for the CRESS activities utilising paper, marker pens and a bag of craft materials.

Aims

  • to provide clear information examples and demonstration of a useful range of therapeutic assessment activities across the dimensions of therapeutic dialogue

  • to provide examples of CRRES activities to enable communication about an array of themes and issues for all ages

  • to provide EPs with experience of using therapeutic assessment activities and key humanistic arts psychotherapy facilitation skills, with fellow delegates (serving as clients), such that they have personal experience of their impact and feel ready to apply them in their work.

Applications can be made  for delivery to teams of 6 or more at their service base, or as expressions of interest from individuals EPs for a regional course to be set up in their locality.  Regional course places cost £120 each.

 

3    Facilitating the use of miniatures in trauma-informed EP assessment

A 3/4 day course, 10am - 4pm, focussing on developing humanistic facilitation skills associated with enabling clients to share their thoughts, feelings and understandings via the safety of symbolism in miniature world scenes.  An experiential model is used so that delegates have supervised practise in using the technique, as well as first hand experience of the process by serving as clients in pair and small group work.  This course can act alone or as a useful follow up to the full day intensive training on the CRRES model.

Applications can be made  for delivery to teams of 6 or more at their service base, or as expressions of interest from individuals EPs for a regional course to be set up in their locality.  Regional course places cost £120 each.
