Drawing and Talking Therapy Training is an experiential training programme designed for professionals who work with children and young people.

Drawing and Talking now trains staff and carers in a number of organisations around the world. Drawing and Talking is a safe and easy to learn serial drawing technique for use with children and young people who have suffered trauma or have underlying emotional difficulties affecting their mental health and well-being.
Drawing and Talking therapy supports those who are not realising their full potential either socially or academically. Too often people feel afraid to admit they need help around their mental health. We worry about what people will think of us, whether you are a child or young person, adult or grandparent we all at times feel like we are struggling. The important thing to know and remember is you are not alone and help is available. If you are a child or young person who is looking for support around your mental health and well-being there are lots of adults willing to help. Try to think of an adult you can trust, perhaps your parent or another family member, a teacher or your doctor and try to talk with them. If you would like to find out if your school or local charity has trained someone in Drawing and Talking then you can find a practitioner.
The contact details of each organisation or private practitioner will be listed. Talking Working with the child or young person’s inner world needs to be carried out safely and non-intrusively, with respect for the child or young person’s own pace and state of being. This is why anyone using Drawing and Talking learns to stay in the world of the child or young person’s drawing. The child or young person sets the pace and decides what to bring to the session.

Their whole job in life is to take information in. It is important as parents and teachers, that we understand the precious opportunity we have to teach our young children to know and to love God. There are at least two examples in the Bible that demonstrate this. Consider the story of baby Moses in Exodus 2:1-10.
