Facilitator: Peter Slattery
Peter has worked with individuals, families and communities for over 30 years. He lives in Sydney, but works throughout Australia as well as Asia,
Europe and North America. He has written 'Youth works’ and produced the training DVD 'Conversations with young people', and most recently the group
work resource ‘THOUGHTPICS’. He strives constantly to find or develop new, exciting and ever more useful ways of helping people explore what troubles
or inspires them. In this quest, he calls on anything that might be helpful; physical movement, theatre, storytelling, drawing, what might be called
‘humour’ and really, anything at all that might add something to this process. Peter says "what a totally challenging joy all of this is"!
