Checklist of preparations and practical hints for leaders
ByBernie Warren
Pages 8

Below I have outlined some observations and questions that I feel are important to the running of a successful session of creative therapy. I feel the questions are relevant to anyone leading a creative session, irrespective of their background, experience, style(s) of leadership or the groups with which they are working; however, these factors will obviously affect the answers that each of us gives to these questions. The checklist below reflects my personal concerns, namely: being clear on my responsibilities as leader; treating the people I work with, irrespective of age or ability, as unique human beings;1 and providing a structure in which people can enjoy themselves, be creative and work towards overcoming the mental, physical or emotional conditions that they face in their daily lives.
