    Drawing and Talking is a safe, easy to learn method of working with children and young people. It aims to help in the relief of any underlying emotional difficulties that may be affecting behaviours and learning. The core of the method lies in encouraging the child to draw with a person they feel comfortable with, at the same time each week, whilst asking gentle non-intrusive questions about the drawing. Over time a symbolic resolution is found to old conflicts, and old traumas can be healed. The child will become more able to control their behaviour and better able to access the learning process in school. Based on Jungian principles and developed by Dr John Allans, this drawing technique was used by him to train students at the University of British Columbia.
