Getting Crafty: Diversional Therapy for Beginners
March 31 2012 Cairns workshop teaches recycled craft and how to engage with people while crafting together. Plus meet, Bear, our qualified Animal Assistant Therapy dog. Recycled craft and Bear together package as a diversional therapy workshop for beginners. The primary goal of Diversional Therapy is to help the process of empowerment and enable participants to make choices and decisions which maximise their participation in leisure experiences that suit their needs and wants. This is achieved through the facilitation, co-ordination and planning of leisure and recreational programs that are designed to support, challenge and enhance the psychological, social, emotional, spiritual, cognitive and physical well-being of people.
On the way to work, imagine stopping at a red light to watch a road smart crocodile pop out of a storm drain to wander across the pedestrian crossing!
On an arterial Cairns road that leads to schools, surgeries, shopping centres, transit stations and the city, a 1.5 meter salt water crocodile did exactly that: it came out of a drain and attempted to walk across the street.
Did your Easter driving do this?
My mini up-cycling Muse’s are travelling for the Easter holidays. They sent a photo of their recycled love and care for the road carnage of native Australian animals. This is an Echidna they stopped to help and take to an animal hospital.
