Dyslexia and creative expression. Techniques to develop non-verbal self awareness.
Our Wednesday workshops are starting up again! If you have an interest in the emotional repercussions of dyslexia and how to understand them a little more these workshops are for you.
Each week we look at different topics in an interactive, facilitated, relaxed forum. Each topic is geared towards developing a resilient sense of dyslexic identity.
Whether you are a professional supporting those who are dyslexic, or are a dyslexic person yourself, this is a fun and enlightening way to expand your knowledge base and gain 2 hours of CPD.
You will join like minded individuals for a two hour creative and therapeutic-coach based workshop addressing the Emotional Repercussions of Dyslexia based in a tranquil, harmonious setting that nurtures personal and professional wellbeing and self-care.
We will be focusing specifically on sharing our learning from ten years of our GroOops Dyslexia Aware Counselling experience, helping you to develop your personal practice further and offering ways to pass it on to your client base in creative ways.
There are any number of assistive technology and skills based strategies specifically designed to support the dyslexic learner. However, at GroOops we believe that someone in emotional distress because of their dyslexia is not in the right frame of mind to absorb still more information.
Many clients are overwhelmed when they find they are dyslexic and are trying to make sense of who they thought they were, who they are, and who they can be.
Others have no idea that dyslexia is anything more than something to do with reading and writing and are confused and disorientated by their seeming inability to cope with life generally and their emotional reactions specifically.
Dyslexia is so much more than a difficulty with reading and writing, both through its inherent constitutional weaknesses but also in its potential, and often disregarded, outstanding strengths.
At GroOops we believe that dyslexia can impact on the emotions in very profound and insidious ways. Our ten years of experience have shown that, if unaddressed or misunderstood, dyslexia can impact in subtle and distressing ways on every aspect of a person’s life from their personal relationships through to their ability to contend with their environment.
When these challenges are addressed therapeutically our clients have the opportunity to develop an integrated sense of dyslexic identity, build resilience and self-worth, learn to become their own self-advocate and develop a sense of purpose and meaning in life.
