IDT Specialised Training (CANCELLED)

IDT Specialised Training (CANCELLED)

Interactive Drawing Therapy (IDT) is a powerful modality or ‘way of working’ with clients, used by thousands of New Zealand and Australian service providers in ‘the helping professions’. Our inspiring carefully developed, skills-based training courses have earned a consistently high reputation for delivering quality, user-friendly, results-based, value-for-money outcomes that are guaranteed to rapidly improve your professional effectiveness and provide you with strategic intervention.


  • A 2-day training workshop
  • Children and adolescents have different developmental capacities requiring us to modify our use of IDT
  • The course maps the key developmental stages of the young person to provide guidelines for interventions
  • One of IDT’s principles is to ‘be where the client is’. This includes meeting their psychological age
  • Learn to work collaboratively, developing the page with the client
  • Develop your advocacy skills further using the page for the young person
  • Learn to recognise when the psyche retreats to an earlier developmental phase (regression) and how to work with it
  • Increase your awareness of transference and counter-transference in the working relationship
  • This workshop is valuable to not only those who work with young people. All clients have the capability to regress to an earlier developmental phase
  • Must have completed Foundation Course
