Displace Yourself collaborate with many people that have experienced trauma, substance misuse and varying levels of mental health support needs.
We are lucky to work with supportive arts centres and experienced charitable organisations, and together we have successfully built up creative programmes in some of the lowest arts engagement areas in the country. We have learnt a lot a long the way and would love to share what we have (and still are) learning, in view of increasing arts opportunities for all.
If your team at work would benefit from exploring safe and practical techniques to deal with challenging behaviours or you are you looking for creative new ways to engage with socially excluded groups, we can offer training sessions in the following areas:
1) An exploration of challenging behaviours, effects of trauma, addiction and therapeutic intervention including practical de-escalation techniques (approx 1 hour)
2) A practical exploration of challenging behaviours, effects of trauma, addiction and therapeutic intervention including practical de-escalation techniques. Participants will have the chance to take part in a series of group exercises designed to develop deeper understanding of the challenges people with additional needs face and an inquiry into how to overcome conflict (approx 2 hours)
3) (Same as above). We will also explore creative ways to engage vulnerable adults in new activities and assure that their presence in your building is a mutually positive one. (full day/ 4 hours+)
Training sessions start from £200*. Please get in touch to find out more.
