Making Sense of Wellbeing:
a creative intervention - workshop 3

All the pairs were able to generate a story outline, using the stimuli of diverse images, sounds and objects. Story titles included: The Subtle Torch, The Lighthouse, The Dinner Party, Threshold.

The labels on the 'feeling tree' revealed a familiar pattern:
firstly apprehension, curiosity, confusion; during the workshop interest, positivity and engagement; final comments included 'relieved', 'entertained' and 'exhilarated'.

The results from the completed evaluation stars indicated that across the group as a whole an increase in 'being confident' was the most significant shift, followed by 'sharing with others' and 'imagining possibilities'.

The increase in confidence is consistent with all the previous student learning workshops.
