Application of “Playback Theatre” on the coping of grief for persons who newly acquired a disability

”Playback Theatre” is a spontaneous improvised theatre in which audience or group members tell stories from their lives and watch them enacted on the spot. We incorporate the elements of “Narrative Therapy”, through sharing of own stories and resonance to others’ stories, persons who newly acquired a disability can re-authorize their own identities and identify what values are important to them and how they might use their own skills and knowledge to live these values. Participants in this workshop will experience how “Playback Theatre” can be adopted to support persons who newly acquired a disability to cope with the grief, feel its effect and understand the key points to apply.

 

Application of “Expressive Arts Therapy” on promotion of communications among persons with acquired disability and their family members

Expressive Art Therapy is a mindful use of different art modalities and creative processes in an integrated way to intervention in counseling. In the healing process, our body, mind and spirit are connected for fostering self-understanding, and enhancing self-awareness and creativity. Participants in this workshop will experience how to apply Expressive Art Therapy to facilitate the communications among persons with acquired disability and their family members, for releasing the tension and stress of care-giving works.
