This workshop will be an opportunity to explore the power of playfulness and imagination as healing powers of the mind. There will be times, such as during national CoVid lockdowns and other traumatic experiences, that the mind is probably the only space where we can transcend to a better future using playfulness and imagination.
We will focus on the use of metaphors, therapeutic-cards, images, music & movement. We will learn how using some or all of these methods can help those clients who have experienced trauma or are going through very difficult times by engaging the creative centres of the brain and mind to aid healing.
Very few studies have fully explored the right hemisphere of the brain as a source of healing. The right hemisphere has so often been discarded as the “non-logical” part of our mind. While our imagination can be a source for pain, stress, and anxiety, it is also a very neglected healing tool that has been used throughout human history as a means to ease trauma, and which is now used extensively as a therapeutic tool with children. In this workshop we will explore what creative tools can be harnessed for use in therapy with adults who have experienced trauma, grief or loss.
We will re-embrace George Bernard Shaw’s statement that “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” or we will reiterate homeopathy by saying: If Imagination is the cause of pain Imagination should be the cure, using the concept of “same cures same”.
