Chapter 10 – The Power of Stories
The Emotional Empowerment project evolved from a story called The Icing on The Cake. This story was used in dramatherapy workshops, where groups explored the themes that it contained. These workshops were not recorded. We covered many subjects including addiction, stigma, illusion, fear and trust.
It was clear from the work that not feeling able to communicate, which was the main theme of the story, is a major hazard to our mental well-being. This influenced the Art Clinic to delve deeper into creative ways to enable people to get in touch with, articulate and use their emotions.
