Training

 

Training is delivered by Dr Elinor Brett (Educational Psychologist). Dr Brett has 5 years experience setting up LEGO®-based therapy groups in schools and settings, and has also conducted doctoral level research into the impact of the intervention (in publication). Training is suitable for staff in schools and settings, and will provide everything needed to set up and run a group. A CD of printable resources is provided on the day, enabling attendees to set up groups without preparing resources prior to their first session (LEGO® or construction materials will need to be purchased before running groups). A booklet covering the content of the training course in detail is also provided.

The training focuses largely on the practical application of LEGO®-based therapy to schools and settings, and content is delivered through interactive group activities, practical sessions and discussions. The training covers:

  • Setting up and running LEGO®-based therapy sessions in schools and community settings

  • Effective facilitation strategies

Who is the training suitable for?
