'Who Are You,' when faced with a difficult situation? ‘How Are You,’ when you’re upset? When you get mad, can you feel the heat rising in your body? Can you feel the frown on your face? Can you feel your body tightening? What does body language say about your thoughts and attitude? *** Your very best friend in the world is a Bully. Do you go along to get along? *** What small steps can you take to resolve a conflict before it takes hold and turns into a raging inferno? *** 'Think Differently' encourages participants to imitate and synthesize life experiences and develop concepts about self and others through dramatic play *** Guided coaching by the artist supports skill-building as participants share, learn, and grow in an interactive environment that honors their feelings and unleashes their thinking!
