This session is only for Creative Mentors on The Mighty Creatives’ Creative Mentoring Pool.

In response to the Creative Mentoring Support Survey, we have worked hard to craft a training programme that responds to the needs of the Creative Mentors. We hope you find the sessions inspiring.

This is part of a 6-part training series offering practical top tips, resources and activities for you to do with your Creative Mentees where applicable.

Context of the Sessions

We know that Creative Mentoring can be challenging at times. Through the nature of our work and those we support, we often come across challenges with:

  • Dysregulation,
  • Anger,
  • Disengagement and Resistance,
  • Decision Making and Exercising Personal Power,
  • Reflections and Celebrating Strengths,
  • Saying Goodbye.

This 6-part series aims to provide and equip Creative Mentors to develop a toolkit of activities and opportunities to offer your Creative Mentees when these challenges arise, but more importantly as part of your consistent practice.

Unlike some of our other training sessions that explore theories and approaches, Creative Mentors will be guided through activities developed specifically for this work, and they will take away a PDF of resources to enable them to continue to respond to their Creative Mentees.

This Session

The theme of focus in this session is Anger. We know through our work that some of our Creative Mentees find it difficult to manages feelings of anger. This perfectly healthy emotion may display itself in healthy and unhealthy ways. For example, a Creative Mentee may display behaviours that are outwardly aggressive (such as shouting, swearing, physical violence or threatening behaviour), inwardly aggressive (such as being unkind to themselves, avoiding things that make them happy or self-harming) or passive aggression (such as disengagement, ignoring people, refusing to do activities etc).

We will explore some practical exercises that you can do to support your Creative Mentee to manage their anger in healthy ways.

We hope by the end of the session

You will have left the session feeling equipped in supporting your Creative Mentee to control, manage or reflect on their anger as part of your journey together.
