  • Case study 3 – Co-creativity in learning.

Case Study 1 – Working co-creatively with trauma

How do we meet with someone who may be chaotic, rigid, fragmented, dissociated? We have learned much from neuroscience research. Through the lens of a co-created relationship within the therapy process, the issues of power, control, oppression, shame – associated with trauma and learned in relationship – can be repatterned. The co-creative approach in TA facilitates shared meaning making as a way to find a sense of safety and stability, supporting an ability to tolerate and develop relational contact and integration. Coping strategies, such as defensive splitting and dissociation are honoured, and accounted by co creative TA, which offers us a way of inviting traumatized people into engagement with and ownership of their here and now reality and resources

Case study 2 – Working co-creatively in management processes

In this workshop Nicole and Traian will be sharing the process of a management team development project that is based on the principles of co-creative TA and will be speaking about how the culture benefits from the influence of a co-creative mindset within an organization. We will focus on how we model the principles of co-creative TA, rather than teach them. We perceive co-creative TA not so much as a toolbox, but more a way of relating, making contact and using what is happening in the present moment. This supports new relational experiences, taking new decisions for collaboration and thus develop further.

Case study 3 – Co-creativity in learning

James and Paul use co-creativity to support adult learning, development and transformational change. In this workshop, we will share our experiences and processes with you and invite you to consider how you might use co-creativity in your work, whether you are a teacher, trainer or someone who supports personal development and change. We offer you the opportunity to engage in an exploration of how this looks in practice, drawing on both of our experiences in using this in our work and also drawing on your experiences, feelings and thoughts around what we have presented this weekend and its application in the field of education.
