Workshop Outcomes:

At the completion of this workshop, participants will have:

  • Been provided with a range of immediately useful ideas for the use of the practice tools.
  • Had the opportunity to engage in practice opportunities to play with various cards.
  • Considered the client-directed philosophy behind the tools and the implications of this for the skills of pairing tools and questions.
  • Had opportunities to share and reflect on the creative possibilities for the use of the tools within their own practice.
  • Been introduced to the possibilities for creating their own tools and resources.


 Some of the great feedback we received about this event:

  • Great presentation, inclusive learning environment and a good pace. I enjoyed the mix between small groups and the larger demonstrations
  • I found that the practical demonstrations of how to use the resources really useful, I now have the confidence to use the cards with clients
  • I loved that fact that we got to use a whole range of cards and seeing the practical examples of getting things put in practice
  • Great facilitation, thank you very much for a fantastic workshop!
  • Learning all about the various cards and going through examples of how to use them, getting a chance “to do” rather than just listen assisted my learning and I will now be using these cards with my work
