“The Drawing and Talking Technique”
A NEW PROGRAMME FOR BRIGHTER FUTURES
This is a method that uses simple drawing techniques and is designed to let a child process his or her feelings or worries internally, in a safe environment and at their own pace.
The method we use encourages each side of a child’s brain to work together to process difficult memories by combining:
Drawing (creative) – which is a right-brained activity
Talking (verbal) – which is a left-brained activity
Difficult memories, which may be combined with high levels of emotion, are stored in visual form in the right brain and may be expressed in visual form through the child’s drawings.
Once on paper, they then become accessible to the logical left brain.
Talking about the drawing allows a ‘THINKING PROCESS’ to take place which helps the child to know that an experience is in the past and they can file it away safely or even forget it, enabling the “HEALING PROCESS”.
Over time, the child becomes more able to process and manage their thoughts and feelings which may lead to more positive behavior and engagement.
This 1-1 course, supporting Emotional Wellbeing runs for 12 weeks.
