CEU WORKSHOP:  USING DESIGN PSYCHOLOGY TO CREATE IDEAL PLACES

Presented by:  Toby Israel, Ph.D.

http://www.ifda.com/webfm_send/341

 Toby Israel, Ph.D. is the founder of Design Psychology, a new field that continues to gain international attention, including in the L.A., N.Y. and Financial Times, CBS Sunday Morning, NPR’s “Talk of the Nation,” and “Radio Times.”  Trained as an Environmental Psychologist, she is a multi-disciplinary professional with experience in design, psychology, the arts and education who applies scholarship to the “real world” practice of design.  Her groundbreaking approach is described in her book, Some Place Like Home: Using Design Psychology to Create Ideal Places.

How can you use Design Psychology to create ideal places?  In this hands-on workshop, participants complete a variety of interactive exercises from the ‘Design Psychology Toolbox’ to “design from within.” By exploring intimate connection with place, workshop members uncover their own most positive experience of past homes, neighborhoods and communities.  Drawing upon this core of best-remembered places, participants learn how to successfully ‘design-in’ social/ psychological space use needs not just traditional square footage requirements.  Designers taking this workshop learn about this meaningful and rigorous programming method that can use the next day to help them/their clients gain a personalized “Design Psychology Blueprint”- - a guideline for creating authentic, nurturing home and place. (.6 CEU credits)
