How to play - embracing creative approaches in life story work

Join Blue Cabin Associate Artist, Nic Golightly, to learn some tried and tested creative approaches to life story work. In this session you will gain practical insight into creative methods of engagement, with a therapeutic approach, which are designed specifically for care-experienced children and young people.

Don’t worry – no previous creative experience is required – just a willingness to be open to creative ideas and play.

What will I take from this Live Classroom?

  • An understanding of the practicalities of facilitating Creative Life Story Work
  • Examples of what can arise in sessions with care-experienced children and young people (both the expected and the unexpected)
  • You’ll find out how you too can feel comfortable embracing a playful creative approach whilst assisting and encouraging children and young people in exploring their own life stories.
