Based on individual assessments and local health and education priorities, a programme of stand-alone workshops and on-going sessions using colour, creativity and personal development increase self-esteem and well-being.
Designed and developed as suitable for small group use (approx 8 persons) these sessions provide a unique combination of occupational therapy and colour awareness techniques that are tailored to create positive outcomes in a range of occupations.
A peer-reviewed evaluation based on the success of the innovative Northamptonshire Learning on Prescription pilot project is now available.
