Learning Through Play

Exploring Issues and Feelings

Programmes Available

Spotlight Workshop


Through our SpotLight intervention, we aim to mitigate the poor health outcomes associated with childhood exposure to domestic abuse by providing five 1:1 individualised support sessions.


We use forum theatre and digital resources to enable children and young people to explore relationship issues, improve cognitive and consequential thinking and build confidence and self-esteem.

Our programmes provide an appropriate means of processing events with children and adolescents for whom verbal methods alone may be insufficient.

We tap into their natural inclination toward play and utilise it to engage the participants as a means of safely exploring issues and difficult feelings.

EdShift’s workshops are facilitated in a safe space, encouraging participants to explore often suppressed feelings. Our drama practices accesses creativity and imagination because it is a safer, familiar method for young people to make sense of relationships and complex feelings.
