assertiveness

Interactive Forum Theatre Workshop

The workshop presents and explores a range of situations and stories in a relaxed and non-threatening atmosphere using the techniques of forum theatre.

'The best thing was the style and level of involvement. The creative way in which the scenes were played made it easy to identify each situation and got you involved immediately. The scenes were extremely effective. Much better than notes or DVDs, they make a lasting impression. It was also good fun!'
Head of Data Management
