CPD Training

Supporting professional development

Gibraltar - 9 Weekends 2019-2020          Therapeutic Play & Creativity Course for Psychological / Social Health / Educational Professionals / Carers:  Cutting edge theory, as well as a chance to Recharge, Renew, Develop, Be Inspired and Inspiring!

Join our holistic, personal growth and professional training, if you want to integrate understanding of Trauma, Play, Drama, Creative-Expressive Therapeutic Interventions into your service / client work / supporting children, parents and families. 


Our clients' (and at times, our own) unprocessed trauma and our lack of suitable resources can have an impact on our vitality and efficacy as a helping professional.   That's why this course is designed to give you theoretical underpinning and a nurturing space to experience the techniques, tools and approaches to healing.  


Learning takes place in a supportive, playful, creative and mindful environment.  We actively support greater Social Responsibility, Ethical and Sustainable practice - so that this holistic experience can have a positive impact on your health and the health you can bring to your clients and healing or helping communities. 


We will be holding 9 rich, creative, experiential weekends, integrating cutting edge theory and practice from a Creative-Expressive, Neuro-Relational model of trauma and development.  


We are accepting applications now, and will commence in September 2019. 


The course follows the same structure each weekend, and will provide you with 140 hours of CPD training, as well as provide reading, articles and podcasts to make the most of time, between weekends.  We will have long lunch breaks and time at the end of the day to reflect, connect and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. 

We will use yoga exercises and focused breathing times together, in and around the basic structure: 

Friday 6-9pm Orientation for the weekend ahead;

Saturday 10-5 

Sunday 9-4
