Imagine you stand in front of a group and everything goes different than you expect. Your plans do not work out, you freeze and the level of inner anxiety is increasing immediately. The creative processes of the brain are blocked at that moment.
How can you deal with these challenging ambiguous situations?
Improvise! Improvisation is a skill that is commonly used every day, even though we might not be aware of it. We believe that practicing improvisation frees the mind and leads to the reduction of one’s inner anxiety and helps to act more confidently in unexpected situations.
This training course is for youth workers, educators, teachers and trainers who work with groups of young people, who intend to develop their self-confidence through improvisation and are willing and ready to use improvisation tools in their youth work practice.
The aim of this training course is to empower those, who work with groups of young people to be confident and free in challenging and unexpected moments and enable them to use improvisation techniques with young people.
To achieve this aim we set the following objectives:
• to experience improvisation moments to develop self-confidence as a youth worker/educator/trainer
• to develop improvisation skills of youth workers/educators/trainers
• to learn how to use and apply improvisation tools while working with young people to improve self-confidence, support learning and cooperation in teams, and release the creativity of youth
During the training course participants will experience improvisation through different methods (artistic creation, theatre, dance etc.) as individuals, working in smaller groups and as a whole group. We will reflect on the personal experiences and connect those to situations in daily life and youth work practice. Besides the opportunity of exploring improvisation, participants will be able to apply the newly gained methods and tools in their every day youth work, and empower young people to free their creativity and increase their self-confidence.
