We offer a glimpse into a unique training for educators, counselors, artists, coaches and facilitators who wish to discover a way of using arts-based processes (builds, paintings or photos) symbolically in SL. We call this Symbolic Modeling (SymMod). This useful tool can be applied to intellectual, psychological, spiritual or creative processes, both with individuals and with groups. We will be showing a short film, as well as describing and demonstrating the SymMod method.
- Participants will be able to witness the SymMod process and its usefulness in various fields.
- Participants will be able to understand the benefits of training in the SymMod method.
