PLAYFUL EXCHANGE ™ is best perceived as a steady collaboration of Co-Creating authentic & playful dialogues. When we join in activities kids love, we generate meaningful exchanges enabling us to establish solid foundations of trust.
DREAM TRAVELER ™ is a storytelling model that uses the Dream World to initiate authentic creative solutions to help guide youth toward self-empowerment. This foundation tool set is designed to reframe nightmares and give tools to children and parents who need some help battling monsters under the bed.
An important consideration of Dream Traveler™ is the construction of a ready-to-use toolbox. Designed to assist and inspire parents and educators, who wish to work with youth in this manner. Engaging with Dream Traveler enables dreamers to question the world around them, develop problem-solving skills, gain critical awareness, and participate in opportunities to effectively make decisions necessary to create personal change. A meaningful dialog, even guised within a fantastical story can cover countless topics of concern as they flow in and out of an experience fashioned around purposeful play.
Gamification uses an empathy-based approach (such as design thinking) for introducing, transforming and operating a service system that allows players to enter a game-full experience to support value creation for the players and other stakeholders. My goal is to impart skills to aid self-regulation and promote creative problem solving while inspiring empowerment. Using mental visualization exercises and prompts to assist and inspire story conception, youth are taught to breath, focus, and recognize how to regulate control over their bodies, thoughts, and responses.
