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

NB - this course is suspended due to the pandemic.

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.
