CPS programs / Emotions As Fuel For Creative Problem Solving

Facilitators: Clara Kluk and Sylvain Rouillard
Delivered in English with French support


Knowledge of Creative Problem Solving is required to participate in this program.


Imagine a painter painting….Of course this artist relies on technique and skills. It’s quite easy to imagine that this painter also has to be in a certain state of mind, an emotional availability, in order to be permeable to what emerges from within, to be playful in a certain way. What about YOU when you are engaged in a creative problem solving process? What about your client or group if you are a facilitator? This workshop is an opportunity to explore, using artistic media, the emotions that could become fuel for each phase of the creative problem solving process. It will also be an opportunity to discover activities aimed at bringing the client or the group, at every step of the process, closer to a fertile and different emotional state.

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify the specific emotions that could enrich each phase of the creative problem solving process and experiment and reflect on these emotions through artistic media;
  • Develop strategies that will emotionally prepare an individual or a group to fulfill the tasks associated with each phase of the problem solving process; and
  • Experiment with artistic expressions as opportunities to take risks, have fun and create.
