About Child Expressive Certificate program.

This Child Expressive certificate programme is a highly experiential course offers training in emotionally expressive methods and Inner-Life Skills that promote emotional integration, self-awareness, self-esteem and resilience in children and adolescents.

Expressive Therapies (ET) methods are used with children from 6 to 19 years. Research and supervision reports indicate that ET provides substantial long-term benefits such as an increase in resilience, selfmotivation, increased attention span, less aggressive behaviour and a better sense of self.

The wide range of, often playful, activities ensure that both clients and counsellors have increased motivation to participate.

The course provides a large number of new skills that enhance the creativity of counsellors, and provide a means of making deep contact with clients. Imagine you and your clients enjoying the counselling process, quickly forming empathic bonds, and working through challenges with ease.
