What does your own view of the world bring to the way you work? How does the work you do contribute to the wider world? How ethical is it - environmentally and socially? How do you help your participants to reflect on their own implicit bias and think critically about their lives and their futures? This course will help you reflect on your professional practice and support others to do the same.
Among the reflexive techniques we will explore will be creative art, drama, philosophy, critical thinking and walking around the Lake District landscape.
Suitable for outdoor, environmental and experiential education and development training professionals, nurses, therapists, social workers, youth workers, military (or ex-military) personnel, teachers (all ages) and trainers working with this approach or general CPD.
Credit available towards postgraduate qualifications.
