This session is part one of a two-part workshop series delivered by Jo Stockdale from Well Within Reach and is for members of The Mighty Creatives’ Creative Mentoring pool. You can sign up to session two by clicking here. Although preferred, it is not required for you to attend both sessions.

Why Relationships Matter

We are primarily concerned with our practice; creating positive change in young people through the work we do with them, but- although our practice will always be important- just as important as what we do is who we are-with, and to-the children we support; Afterall we are human beings, not ‘humans doing’.

This two-hour workshop introduces the core principles of relationship-led practice, enabling you to strengthen and support positive outcomes for your creative mentees by;

  • Understanding what ‘person-centredness’ means to your practice, and how to use it.
  • Nurturing and deepening the potentially powerful and healing connection that exists between you and your mentees.
  • Manage a secure, healthy and sensitive adult-child relationship with young people who already have a history of ruptured relationships.

This focus will help you to understand the person-centredness way of working with your child or young person and understand the importance of your practice being built on top of and around positive relationships.

If you have any questions about the session, please get in contact with our Youth Programme Manager, Emily York, by emailing Emily.york@themightycreatives.com.
