Creative Path – Personal and Professional Development for the BAME Community

Online Delivery

These are challenging times for practitioners. Workloads have increased making it hard to find the time to be reflective. New face-to-face protocols are often frustrating and anxiety-producing. Remote working can mean reduced interpersonal cues, feelings of isolation and fatigue.

All this may leave us feeling unsupported and struggling to maintain a healthy work life balance.

 

Who is the course suitable for?

This Practitioner Space is aimed at the BAME Community, but we welcome practitioners of any heritage and in accordance with the values and aims of Neurotribe UK, this course is an inclusive environment for neurodiverse practitioners. To reduce any barriers to inclusion they may face, subtle but powerfully effective adjustment of arts activities are implemented to be fully inclusive to neurodiverse and neurotypical participants. *Further information on this available upon request.

Suitable for:

* mental health practitioners

 

* clinical supervisors

* art therapists

 

* play therapists

* music or drama therapists

 

* counsellors

* social workers

 

* youth workers

* Life coaches

 

* mentors

* Key workers

* SENCO’s & special needs teachers

*We are fully inclusive to Neurodiverse members of the Black, Asian and White minority ethnic community, and a practitioner space for all those working with the Black, Asian an White minority ethnic Neurodiverse community, who are currently facing a maelstrom of unique challenges.
