Geese Theatre Company has worked in arts-based practice in criminal justice, social welfare and forensic mental health for 30 years. Alongside its work within these settings, the company regularly facilitates training courses on its use of theatre and drama techniques in group-work settings.
This specialist three-day course ‘The Other Side of the Wall’ is an opportunity to learn more about the methodology behind Geese’s work, for staff working in community or secure settings with patients or service users who have mental health issues or personality disorders.
The course is recommended for:
Therapists (e.g. OTs, SaLTs or arts-based therapists)
However, it is open to anyone who has experience of, or who is interested in, working in this field.
Participants will be invited to experience and practice a variety of drama-based methods for use in group-work. This will be underpinned by a clear, theoretical framework and guidance from experienced Geese practitioners. No previous experience of using drama or theatre techniques is required.
