DREAM TRAVELER ™ is a storytelling model that uses the Dream World to initiate authentic creative solutions to help guide youth toward self-empowerment.
An important consideration of Dream Traveler™ is the construction of a ready-to-use foundational toolbox. Designed to assist and inspire parents/educators, who wish to introduce Purposeful Play activities.
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.
Dream Traveler 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.
