Description of the workshop:
We will show you in this workshop how Howie the Harp as a training offers a new environment for the recovery of students (and employees); We encourage our students to use our locations and the programme to be creative. Think about:
• Poems written by talented students to describe their recovery.
• Special lessons such as Photo Voice
