Why Creative Resiliency?
As therapists, there is no better time to deepen our understanding of resiliency factors in children. The more resiliency factors a child has, the more likely they will thrive in the world, despite the challenges they may face.
Creative resiliency is a factor that we can easily support in children and it has profound ripple effects. Children are naturally creative, and unfortunately, this skill is too often lost as children move into adulthood.
The future of our world depends on a new generation of creative thinkers, adaptive minds, and connected relationships. Creative resiliency can build these skills to support the mental well-being of the individual child as well as the larger community.
We will utilize experiential teaching so that you can first grow your own ability to think creatively, expand your awareness, and shift your perspective.
We will utilize theories from a variety of fields, including developmental psychology, resilience science, existential theory, Buddhist psychology, Relational-Cultural Theory, improvisational comedy, and others. Once grounded in these theories, we can then move forward to make actionable steps towards cultivating creativity in ourselves.
Most importantly, after we engage in experiential practices with these theories, we will target the applicability of these experiences into the child therapy room!
