Event date has passed

This one day workshop will enable social workers to creatively experience the process of making an altered book and understand the benefits and uses of facilitating this process with clients. Altered book making can provide clients with a new means of expression, an opportunity to change perspective and a way to explore difficult emotions and experiences. The workshop will equip social workers with experience, skills and confidence to adapt this process into their own work environment. No art experience is necessary.

Learning objectives

  1. Learn the reasons and benefits of using altered books with clients
  2. Experience and develop creative techniques for working with clients
  3. Understand how to work with individuals and groups and when not to use the process
  4. Explore ideas for use with different client types
  5. Develop ideas for adapting to your own clients and work context
