Session Overview

Tapping Creative Juice: A positive way to respond to the economy

What 
happens 
when 
things
 don’t
 go
 as
 expected?
 How
 do
 we
 greet 
the
 unexpected 
with 
a
 creative
 and collaborative
 response 
that
 bring
 out
 new
 solutions
 and
 benefits? 
What
 would
 happen 
if, 
instead 
of
 blocking the
 strange
 or
 unfamiliar, 
we 
accepted 
it
 as
 an
 offer 
to 
interact
 with 
new
 possibilities?

The
 economic
 realities
 we
 face 
today
 require 
us
 to 
develop
 unprecedented 
responses
 to 
new
 situations.
 Once
 we
 have
 access 
to 
our
 inner
 spring
 of
 creative
 abundance,
 we
 can 
see
 situations
 from 
another
 perspective
 and
 generate 
ideas 
that 
we 
had
 never
 thought 
of 
before. Interactive
 exercises
 and
 creative, playful
 games
 draw
 out
 a
 spontaneous,
 imaginative
 spirit 
in
 people 
and 
invite
 them 
to 
respond 
to
 situations in 
original 
ways. The
 results 
are 
not 
only 
delightful 
and
 surprising 
but 
also bring 
out 
an 
atmosphere 
of team
 cohesiveness 
and
 co‐operation. The 
deep 
listening, 
trust 
and 
group awareness of 
these
 experiences 
illustrates 
what
 it 
can 
be 
like 
when 
individuals 
pull 
together
 for 
the best 
outcome. 
Everyone 
feels 
good
 about themselves 
when 
they
 respond
 to 
the 
unexpected 
with
 their 
most focused 
team
 effort. In
 this
 way, 
we 
get 
to 
experience 
how
 each 
person’s 
creative 
impulse
 is 
the 
key
 to better 
morale and improved 
team 
output.

In 
this 
interactive
 session,
 Sharon 
Bronstein 
MSW 
and 
Alan 
Caplan 
MA,
 who 
have over
 20 
years 
of
 experience 
as 
creative
 arts 
therapists, 
will 
guide 
participants 
to 
apply
 their 
skills to discover new solutions to everyday work challenges.
