Lifestage, Inc, SW CPE is recognized by the New York State Education Department's Board for Social Work as an approved provider of continuing education for licensed social workers #0270. This workshop provides 6 hours of Continuing Education.

This workshop will be a deep dive into the parallels between the creative process and the process of attitude/behavior change, using Applied Improvisation and storytelling techniques and principles. These techniques engage our creative capacity to be open, receptive, and curious, and connect emotions, thoughts and actions into meaningful, small steps toward larger goals that hold out the possibility of transformation. We will discuss ways to use storytelling principles to advance clinical goals and help clients, groups and communities galvanize the change process and the research into how storytelling and improvisation are being used in clinical and educational settings. Social-emotional skills that are essential for sustaining attitude/behavior change are developed through these creative experiences. We will discuss the research that provides evidence for the therapeutic value of creative, interactive experiences and applications to practice.

Objectives:

Learn improvisation games and exercises that engage participants in a creative process and teach principles about it at the same time;

Explore ways to co-create stories using improvisation as a way to understand shifts in mindset;

Learn techniques for using stories a frame for sharing important facts, date or information.

Identify the parallels between the creative process and the change process;

Learn the stages of the creative process and warm ups for each stage;
