Appreciative Inquiry and Solution Based Therapy

University of Brighton
18 November 2009 14:00-16:30

‘ ... it has become increasingly clear since the latter half of the 20th century that knowledge or understanding is not always reducible to language ... thus not only does knowledge come in different forms, the forms of its creation differ.’

 The Creativity Centre at Brighton University is presenting a series of workshops that address the current interest in visual and reflective approaches to learning. Each experiential workshop will focus on a method or group of strategies and their relevant theoretical contexts. The intention is for participants to gain the ‘know-how’ of one or more methods at each workshop and to explore how these might be applied in their own work situation. The series is aimed at anyone involved in teaching, work-based learning or personal and professional development.

The theme of today's workshop is: Appreciative Inquiry and Solution Based Therapy. Straightforward ways of supporting students, individuals and groups, to positively reflect on their current learning or working situations and make constructive changes. 

Following workshops will be as follows:

November 25th: Object Based Learning. Strategies to stimulate the engagement of students through the structured use of objects and their cultural contexts. The session will include information on where to find resources.
December 2nd: Drawing Dialogue. Non-threatening drawing methods that investigate inter-personal interaction and communication. Especially useful for those involved in supervision, group work  or professional practice.
The workshops run on Wednesday afternoons from 2.00-4.30 pm at the Creativity Centre in the Cockcroft Building at Moulsecoomb. The workshops are free but spaces are limited.
