The Liberating Power of Creative Thinking (1 day)


Stress increases as our options decrease. At the most stressed times we often feel that all of our choices are gone. This one day course offers specific techniques which promote creative thinking and new choices for all of life's situations. Creativity is not about flamboyance or extrovert behaviour, it begins with an ability to generate alternatives. The tools shared in this training can be used well for any situation which requires new ideas and new perspectives. Whilst invaluable for writers, artists, poets, bloggers and vloggers - it is also useful for life itself (especially for those who are in helping professions).


This training day will be led by Nick Buchanan who has taught Ideas Generation and Thinking Skills to HND Graphic Design Students.
