7 & 8 Oct 2023 | My Child & the Child in Me | Expectations of Being a Child | Weekend Workshop 1 | Online

Nature? Nurture? Culture? How to understand my role as a child and as a parent.

Our parenting styles are unique and highly personal and at the same time influenced by a complex matrix of psychological, social, political, environmental and economic factors; cultural norms and differences, history, intergenerational biography, habits, temperaments and personal characteristics. To name a few…

Sometimes we are bewildered by our children’s, our own or our parent’s behaviour and sometimes we are overwhelmed by how proud or mystified we are by what they do and how we interact with each other.

This weekend workshop is for people who are interested in understanding more about how, in the light of our individuality and the influences upon us, we nurture, care for, guide and admonish our children. We will pay particular attention to the impact of inter-generational dynamics.

We will look at how we encourage our children to meet developmental, social and educational milestones.

This workshop will be playful and reflective. We will make timelines, family trees and refer to fragments from our own biographies. We will keep a journal, work in pairs and small groups and integrate play and art as well as conversation.

Please note: You needn’t be an art therapist or a parent to attend these workshops – enrolment is open to all. If you were a child at one point in your life, or have children in your life, these workshops are for you!

This workshop will be delivered via Zoom.
